Paul Evans for Paul Evans Studio, deep relief, wall-mounted sideboard model PE-19, welded and patinated steel, slate and darkened wood, United States, circa 1972

Paul Evans 'Deep Relief’ wall-mounted cabinet with welded and patinated steel doors in shades of red, green, grey and blue, with abstract vertical and zigzag lines. The sides consist of metal patchwork and the piece is finished with a slate top. The deep-red wooden interior is divided into two sections.  This piece is relatively modest and refined compared to the designer’s pronounced repertoire.

Paul Evans (1931-1987) interest in haptic quality of this designs was visible from early in his career and mostly realized with metal and chrome. In 1950 Evans started attending the School for American Craftsman. Five years later he started sharing his showroom with Phillip Lloyd Powell and together they start collaborating until 1966. Powell’s woodwork and Evan’s metal craftsmanship combined into a creative partnership. In 1964 Evans starts working together with the Directional Furniture Company. In the early 1970s Evans published his cityscape designs. In 1974 Evans introduced the PE 400 series consisting of walnut burl, olive ash burl, English oak burl in contrast with metal. The development within his oeuvre is clearly seen in the change from mostly metal based works towards pieces working with the effect of chrome surfaces capturing the disco area towards the PE 400 series where Evans developed the popular Cityscape series l and II into a three dimensional design with the contrast between natural wood and chrome surfaces. On the other hand features the ‘Patchwork Series’ in the 1970s again more flat surfaces in use of copper, brass and other metals. Evan’s oeuvre has an impressive size especially when regarding all pieces were handmade.
