Josh Neretin is a Brooklyn based designer and owner of buoyant NYC. Born and raised in New York, he attended SUNY Purchase and graduated with a BFA in sculpture.
Soon after graduation, he set up shop that specialized in fabrication and building work serving the high-end architectural development and interior design industry. Part of the shops focus was fabricating works for internationally renowned artists and major museums. This on-going experience of developing, designing, engineering and fabricating has significantly informed his personal aesthetic.
In 2013, Josh returned to his roots in sculpture and design, forming buoyant NYC. The company designs and fabricates hand crafted light fixtures that aim at a simple sophistication and elegance, while expressing a sculptor’s heritage and a love for material, form, and industry. LED technology brings each piece to life and makes them incredibly energy efficient and long lasting.
Buoyant NYC has been acknowledged in several design trade publications, and was acknowledged with a NYCxDesign award in 2019 for our Della sconce.
We enjoy (and welcome) our collaborations with designers, architects and visionaries.
Josh lives with his family in Brooklyn NY.
