As friends in college, the Blu Dot co-founders shared a passion for art, architecture and design. After school, they went looking for modern design to furnish their first homes, but the things they could afford they didn’t like, and the things they liked they couldn’t afford. They figured they weren’t alone.
So, along with their friend Charlie Lazor, the three of them – two architects and a sculptor – started Blu Dot in 1997. They’ve been designing things they love in their Minneapolis studio every day since.
