Loud and proud. Circula knows just who it is. Generous proportions command a room and create a congenial space to gather ’round. Fit for patio or palace.

Our very first designs were sketched on a shared roll of butcher paper spread across a long table in a 300 square foot space in Minneapolis. Three college friends—two architects and a sculptor—just dreaming and designing. The early makings of a very humble venture inspired by our own futile search for desirable and accessible modern designs for our own homes.
Our goal then and now was to bring good design to as many people as possible. We never imagined that over 20 years later, we’d be lucky enough to still be designing purposeful and beautiful objects in our Minneapolis studio. Only now we do it with an incredibly talented team of fellow design lovers (and a much longer table).
Together, we’ve built a business that not only supports our design habit, but lets us have our hands on the whole process, from product development through the customer experience. It’s how we design pieces that are in it for the long haul. Some of our most popular designs today were part of our very first collection. We hesitate to call anything an “icon,” but we’re working on it!
In 2018, Blu Dot was awarded the prestigious Cooper Hewitt National Design Award in the ‘Product Design’ category.
