Johnny Poux Design launched its first furniture line at the New York International Contemporary Furniture Fair in 1999, where the Chicago Tribune praised the initial collection as a “real showstopper.” Since that time, Johnny Poux has created furniture, lighting, and interiors, in the U.S and internationally, for architects, designers, and sculpture fabricators as well as custom pieces for private clients who include Chris Lehrecke, Gabriella Kiss, David Weeks, Ann Klein, and Workshop Art Fabrication.
A Pratt Institute graduate in Industrial Design, Johnny’s concrete designs were part of the early movement to use this versatile material in furniture and interiors. Johnny Poux Design has been featured in the New York Times, Elle Decor, Paper, Interior Design, Upstate House, and Trendsetter magazine in London, among others.
As a sculptor, Johnny’s large-scale kinetic concrete sculptures and installations explore the relationship between motion and mass.
Johnny Poux Design’s newest furniture line at Ralph Pucci International is all about form and movement. Made from wood, bronze, and cast concrete, these raw materials are shaped and joined with a designer's eye and an artist's hand.
Several of these pieces rotate and pivot and exhibit Poux’s fascination with simple machines and the beauty of a collection of parts in motion.
Johnny lives in Rosendale, New York, near an old cement quarry, with his wife and two daughters, three cats, and five ducks.
