Aaron Poritz

AARON PORITZ (USA, B. 1984)

Aaron Poritz is a Brooklyn-based ceramic artist and furniture designer, born in 1984, in Massachusetts. Growing up in his father’s woodshop and sculpture studio, he always had a passion for understanding how objects and buildings are made. He studied architecture at the California College of the Arts and graduated in 2008. He then moved to New York City, to gain professional experience at a prestigious architecture firm.

In 2012, on a trip to Nicaragua, Aaron connected with a friend who was running a lumber export business focused on processing old growth trees that fell during Hurricane Felix in 2007. He quickly saw an opportunity to design his first collection of furniture in wood. That collection was published in The New York Times, in July of 2013 and his career grew organically from there. In 2014, he moved his studio to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, with a focus on high-end residential, furniture and sculpture projects. His studio is multidisciplinary, with both design and fabrication under one roof.

Aaron’s designs focus on using exquisite materials blended with flawless fabrication. His work highlights the natural patterns and texture found in wood, stone and ceramics. While his furniture is highly detailed and timeless, his sculpture is playful and unexpected, inspired by ancient functional forms, contrasted with wiled surface textures and colors. Aaron Poritz has been featured by and recognized for his exemplary design in Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Architectural Digest, Domus, Los Angeles Times, Interior Design, Elle Décor and many more.
