Josh Neretin is a Brooklyn based designer and founder of buoyant NYC.
Born and raised in New York, he attended SUNY Purchase, graduating with a BFA in sculpture.
Soon after graduation he set up shop that specialized in fabrication and site work serving the high-end architectural development and interior design community. Through connections in this field he soon found himself fabricating works for internationally renowned artists, galleries and museums. This ongoing experience of developing, designing and engineering 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 LED light fixtures that aim at a simple sophistication and elegance, while expressing a sculptor’s heritage and a love of science, material, form, and industry.
