Real Good Project

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of its flagship SoHo store, Blu Dot is releasing 25 of it’s Real Good chairs onto the streets of NYC and tracking where they go.

When we opened our SoHo store in 2008, we
became surrounded by the resourceful culture of “curb-mining”: the act
of finding furniture and art on the street. Now that a year has passed,
our friends at mono
approached us with a way to conduct a curb-mining experiment of our
own: What would happen if we 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?

A documentary film will follow up on some of the new chair owners; how they found their chairs, how they transported them home, and how their new chairs fit into their spaces. The film will premiere in December, at Blu Dot SoHo’s one-year anniversary party.
