We are very proud to share that Fred Puksta, Crown Point’s Product Designer, is currently featured within the pages of UNH Magazine! Born and raised in Claremont, New Hampshire, Fred graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 1981. Although he was a business major, he was drawn to woodworking and furniture building and thus began a successful career in design.
His work ranges from a grandfather clock designed in 1994 and still on display at the Christa McAuliffe Planetarium, to designing furniture for Crate & Barrel, and now designing innovative solutions and custom details for Crown Point cabinetry installations across the country. Fred has been instrumental in our biggest design ideas and innovations, including many patented designs.
Drawing inspiration from the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, Fred designed our Prairie Line with horizontal and vertical lines, dramatic brackets and posts repeated throughout.
