Profile of Josh Urso

Trained in both industrial design and engineering, Josh Urso’s designs are a unique blend of formal aesthetics and material experimentation. He began playing with resin impregnation while studying furniture design at Carnegie Mellon University. Upon graduating, he opened his own firm and slowly built a line of quirky, artistic pieces that celebrate his love of the unexpected. In a world where most designs begin at a desk, Josh Urso is defying convention by heading back to the studio to see what will happen.
