While Poritz was studying architecture and sustainability at California College of the Arts he helped to design the award-winning Refract House for the 2009 Solar Decathlon — which got him a job with Morris Adjmi Architects upon graduating. He worked there for a couple years before making the move to Central America to work with Equitable Origin on a sustainable gas station model. During his travels through Nicaragua, Poritz connected with a wood mill that was collecting woods from the North Atlantic Autonomous Region on the Caribbean coast (where a hurricane tore down thousands of hardwood trees in 2007), giving him a way to collect rare hardwoods in a sustainable and eco-friendly manner and thus, inspiring his own furniture collection.
