Sometimes, good design is about what's not there. The Chicago series takes advantage of negative space, creating smart, elegant storage. Featuring powder-coated tubular steel legs, the Chicago series is multi-functional and keeps books, DVDs and electronics organized. It even lends itself to keeping track of that embarrassing collection you've had since junior high.
Available in maple, graphite-on-oak, and cherry.

Looks great but some problems in assembly
By: LA 323, Homeowner (Los Angeles)
The design is great and once assembled looks perfect. The dowel pins that go through the rods, and that hold up the boxes are very poorly made. They consist of a threaded steel pin into which on either side a bolt is screwed. Four of these things hold up the box. The bolts are require a hex wrench, which is not provided. Usually when you need a hex wrench for assembly it comes in the little bag of tools. I had to find a nother one, which added a couple of days to the assembly process. Anyway the dowel design would be much much much better if it were simpler--just steel rods that go through the holes in the poles. Ideally, there would be groves in the bottoms of the boxes that the dowels would go into. The current design is kinda cheap and inelegant.
Manufacturer: Blu Dot
Blu Dot was formed by three college friends: John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks. After they left college and began to furnish their first homes, they didn't like the stuff they could afford and couldn't afford the stuff they liked. Determined to do something about it, Blu Dot was born in 1997.
Blu Dot creates products that are useful, affordable, and desirable with a design process founded on total collaboration between pencil and paper, materials and machines, even packaging and assembly. Blu Dot has embraced the idea that good design is not just about beauty or form — it is about making our lives just a little easier and a little more enjoyable.View other products from Blu Dot
