The acclaimed Philadelphia-based designer and artisan manufacturer John Pomp brings to life the first-ever brand immersive space at the New York Design Center.
The interiors of John Pomp’s NYDC flagship mirror the products’ futuristic and primitive styles. The moody, patinated steel entrance reveals a 4000 sq ft space flooded with natural light. The customized architecture features plastered walls and dark, oxidized charcoal wood floors contrasted by arches reminiscent of aged futuristic stone structures.
The ambiance inspires reverence for our Earth’s almost otherworldly natural phenomena and beyond. The unique juxtaposition of organic materials like anachronistic glass and polished stainless steel and the more primitive oxidized metals and animal hides honor the primitive past and the passage of time.
“The decision to open a showroom has been in the works for over 20 years”, explains founder and creative director John Pomp. “In 2008, we launched a lighting-focused collection and, with its success, grew the company from a few employees in a small shop to a team of over 55 creatives in a 65,000 sqft state-of-the-art facility workspace that produces everything from raw goods to finished pieces in-house. Matching the team’s growth, I expanded into metal and glass furniture, including statement credenzas, consoles, and coffee tables. With the introduction of a brand showroom, my vision of an entirely organic glass and metal environment will come to life. Our newest collections explore materials in transitory states through different categories, including dining tables, chairs, sofas, one-off works, and even rugs.”
Highlights on display in the space include: the Drift Lighting System, the Caldera Table Collection, the Warp Dining Table Collection, the Fold Sofa System, and the Rift Collection.
