Good design in the wild

Blu Dot

To celebrate the first birthday of their New York flagship furniture store, Blu Dot wanted to answer a simple question: “What is good design?” In a provocative marketing stunt produced by Mono, Blu Dot's “Real Good” chairs were dropped all around New York City and tracked by GPS as people took them from the curb to their homes. Tellart developed all of the technology, rode through New York City in the backs of vans to stalk chair takers, and acted in the brilliant film by Supermarchè.

“For two days, the experiment captured the fascination of New Yorkers, the blogosphere and beyond, with press coverage by everyone from Dwell to the The New York Times Magazine.”
