Sturdy, fair and functional, Aaron Poritz Furniture embodies a sustainable system of sourcing, fabrication and design. The process begins with wood from coffee and teak plantation trees as well as from old growth trees felled by Hurricane Felix and sourced from the North Atlantic Autonomous Region on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua. Aaron Poritz Furniture believes knowing where the wood is sourced is vital in developing a lasting connection and appreciation for the furniture.
Aaron Poritz approaches each piece with a desire to combine strength, comfort, efficiency, quality and design. He focuses on limiting waste and using the strength of the tropical hard woods so the furniture uses no more material than necessary. Each piece is designed using expressive twists on classic wood joinery, showing off the geometric connections and allows the furniture’s structure to be seen and understood. The result is high-quality furniture that people feel good about owning.
