About Blu Dot
Started by three college friends John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks that share a passion for art, architecture, and design. After leaving college and they began to furnish their first homes, but didn’t like the stuff they could afford and they couldn’t afford the stuff that they liked. So the trio figured that they were not alone and were naïve enough to try and do something about it. Blu Dot was born in 1997.
Blu Dot's goal is to bring good design to as many people as possible. That means creating products that are useful, affordable, and desirable. To make that happen, our design process is founded on collaboration. Not just among themselves as they play show-and-tell with concepts, but a total collaboration between pencil and paper, materials and machines, even packaging and assembly. They like to think that the form is almost inevitable, a by-product of the process. Their job is simply to help it emerge as beautifully and as efficiently as possible.

When Blu Dot opened their Soho store in 2008, they learned of the resourceful culture of “curb-mining”: the act of finding furniture and art on the street. After a year had passed, their friends at mono approached us with a way to conduct a curb-mining experiment of their own: What would happen if they left a bunch of Real Good Chairs all over New York, free for the taking? Who will grab them? Where will they go? How will they get there? What will their new homes look like? For two days, the experiment captured the fascination of New Yorkers, the blogosphere and beyond, with press coverage by everyone from Dwell to the The New York Times Magazine. And at their store's First Anniversary party, they premiered a documentary that told the story of the project as well as the chairs' new owners.
