John Pomp is a designer and glass blower who produces sculptural creations with organic forms, combining molten glass, warped metal, and refracted light. At Deco Off 2024, they introduced “Pomp in Paris” – an exhibition that featured a selection of lighting and furniture made entirely in the designer’s Philadelphia, PA studio and can now be seen in their showroom at 200 Lex.
Inspired by the movements and collisions of the stars in space, these iconic pieces by John Pomp, include the Radiant, the Moon Orchid, and the Infinity collections. The Drift Table Lamp, the Warp stool, and the Matter Chandelier were highlighted during deco-off but are now on display in New York.
The Matter Collection represents the movements and interplay of other worldly objects in space; it explores the transitory states of organic, undulating glass and volumetric metal structures in linear, clustered gestures. Each glass element is blown as a sphere and manually manipulated with tools to create an oblong shape. Furthering the Future Primitive art direction driving the brand’s designs and interiors of the brand’s NYC flag ship showroom, the Matter Collection exists in a “vast and undescribed past and future.”
The Drift System is a modular LED light system with several standard modules that can create custom chandeliers, pendants, or large-scale light installations. Inspired by the earth’s movements, the Drift Table Lamp creates a fractured plane of light utilizing hand- formed metal and layered, textured glass to form a deconstructed, monolithic unit.
Inspired by metal softening under heat and pressure, the Warp collection is a node to materiality. Solid, polished metal cylinders warp and crush to create a fluid effect that highlights the quality of materiality.
