Aaron Laux Design

"I believe that we infuse the objects in our daily lives with emotions and memories that reflect who we are. My greatest satisfaction is when other people can experience art through their own stories and recollections. When we fall in love with a work of art, it will continue to give back to us. I believe that to live with art is to live well."

Aaron Laux's designs are inspired by nature, and his intent is to deliver this "nature design" to the built environment. He feels that the addition of organic forms to interior spaces can create a subtle shift to a more livable dwelling. When Laux hears the impressions other people have of his work, it is these personal stories that create connections and the feelings that have a lasting effect in our homes and work places.

Laux challenges himself to use materials that are local and reclaimed, whether they are plywood and construction scraps or whole trees. A chainsaw is the first tool of choice when whole trees are used. The wood is sectioned, shaped, and dried. He then uses stack lamination and free-form fabrication to build the design. In addition to wood, Laux employs concrete, metal, glass and paper.

Laux apprenticed with furniture maker Steven Spiro between the years of 1995 and 2005, and then moved on to the building trades and custom cabinetry. He has a total of 25 years of experience in woodworking and custom design.
