When you send your design to BlueDot, together with our team we will check the feasibility of your idea (see registration procedure below). When your product is ready for production, BlueDot will help you to realize a small batch. The product will be sold via our webshop and other available channels. When your product is a success, there is an opportunity to make some money with your own product.
The BlueDot foundation helps students from the Technical University Delft to bring their product to the market. BlueDot links conceptual work from students with the market. For and by students, the foundation functions as platform and as design label.
The aim of platform BlueDot is to provide students with a valuable learning experience. By bringing together the knowledge of the TU Delft and the business world BlueDot gives students the opportunity commercialize their own products. BlueDot therefore gives the opportunity to talented students to gain important practical skills.
The label BlueDot produces products with a license and sells them under the BlueDot label. By promoting the student as well as the product a direct connection is created between consumers, companies and students.
Debbie Ammerlaan: “The design combines authenticity and technology. The Delft Blue ceramic functions as a thermal isolator to keep the wine cool.”
The holes in the wine cooler have a positive influence on the thermal properties of the design, since they facilitate a chilled airstream.
The Wijnkoeler is traditionally produced at the Porceleyne Fles, the only remaining earthenware factory in Delft, established in the 17th century.
Barbara Grosse-Hering: “The waterwegen combines two familiar associations of Delft: its typical blue decor of ceramics and the authentic canals.”
With Adobe Illustrator graphical drawings of the canals of Delft, Amsterdam and Utrecht were created. The set of two decorative plates are modern, yet recognizable designs.
The Waterwegen are hand painted and traditionally produced at the Porceleyne Fles, the only remaining earthenware factory in Delft, established n the 17th century.
Anne & Serve: “The design brings the escape story of Hugo Grotius to the dinner table. The cloths shows the route and the napkins the five characters.”
The set was authentically woven at the Textiellab of the Textiel Museum in Tilburg, which is specialized in the production of unique fabrics.
Nils Al: “I strive towards my final design in a straight line by making my design swear in an early phase of the process.”
The unique fact about this modern oil lamp is that only the metal wire is custom formed, the rest of the product are purchasing parts.
Roel Roskam: “I wanted to evoke playful experiences and shapes through my designs. They must look simple and energetic at the same time.
Unique for L’Offre is that it is produced from a single material. The metal wires are individually bended in the right shape and welded together.
