NY Design Week 2012 – ICFF: Blu Dot


It’s no surprise that people were flocking to the affordable and approachable pieces at the massive Blu Dot space at ICFF. This time around, Blu Dot got a little luxe with a few of their classic designs, like the ubiquitous Real Good Chair. Formerly the chair has only been offered in red, black, white and aqua, but now it comes in glorious copper. Sturdier and heavier than its thin, powder coated steel counterpart, the copper version will patina with age, like a fine leather chair. No word yet on what the price will be, but even if it’s twice as much as the current $139 version, it’d still fit in with Blu Dot’s modest price point.

The second piece worth noting is the Stamp table, a low lying coffee table that works indoors or out. Like the Real Good Chair, the Stamp’s base comes in a few bright powder coated varieties with a glass table top, but it was the shiny copper model with a white marble top that caught my eye. This one’s so new there aren’t even any decent pictures of it yet, but Blu Dot is working on getting it up on their site, so stay tuned.
