Paul Evans 'Faceted' Wall Cabinet in Chrome and Burl
Paul Evans for Directional, 'Faceted' wall-mounted cabinet, chromed steel, olive burl, glass, United States, 1970s
A sturdy wall-mounted sideboard by Paul Evans for Directional. The piece is an excellent example of how Evans’ Cityscape series evolved into an even more three-dimensional style, known as “Faceted”. These pieces feature a play of depth and dimension. Each piece from this series was made by hand , with fiberglass molds that were filled with foam and were sealed with bolts. The foam was covered with wood or metal and attached to cabinets and other pieces.
Small chips to burl along corners and edges are replaced. Some light scuffs, scratches, and dents to chrome. Overall in good condition.
