John Paul Plauche established Plodes Studio, a Houston–based “design everything” studio, in 2003. The multidisciplinary firm designs products, furniture, and events tht draw from a fusion of art, function, and architectural design. Each design from plodes communicates a clear, conceptual intent, infused with process and meaning. Alongside this intent, each design acknowledges everyday observations, behaviors, and personal experiences to create a cohesive, balanced piece.
