If you’ve ever been curious about the brains behind Blu Dot and maybe what life is like in Minneapolis…a really good time to go check both of them out would be next week around Wednesday the 24th, say 7:00pm-ish, at the Minnesota History Center, 3M Auditorium. Blu Dot founders Maurice Blanks and John Christakos will be giving a lecture titled: “There’s no “I” in design.” The premise of the lecture: “focus on what’s really important: collaboration, camaraderie, and clarity of form.” The talk will be an introduction to the exhibition at the College of Visual Arts featuring Blu Dot’s designs, furniture, concepts, and personality, starting September 25th and ending October 18th.
I just hope one of them arrives to the lecture in a squirrel costume.
