About Us

Meet the Team

Ponderose was founded by five Cal Poly Mustangs that share a passion for elegant illumination and local manufacturing. In a nutshell, Ponderose shifts the paradigm with advanced 3D printing technologies so that design is driven by beauty and function, not ease of mass production overseas. Deriving inspiration from plants, mathematics and mycology, Ponderose invites people to love the place they live a little more with lampshades and homewares made right down the street.
