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.

Centuries of craftsmanship and contemporary design are both reflected in the design of this wine cooler. This unique wine cooler combines contemporary design and centuries of craftsmanship.
