Paul Evans // Heavy Metal Artist of Mid-Century Furniture

Paul Evans Credenza

Paul Evans was a leading designer in the Mid Century American studio and brutalist furniture movement. Evans consistently push boundaries with his innovative approaches to sculptures. Evans applied these same aesthetic principles to furniture, creating chunky, deeply textural works of art that masqueraded as utilitarian objects. He produced several lines for the manufacturer Directional, the most well known of which is probably his Cityscape series, which comprised a range of furniture sheathed in a sleek patchwork of metal, mirror, and wood.
