A pair of sculpted bronze resin over steel armchairs designed by Paul Evans for Directional in Original Jack Lenor Larsen fabric, model number PE 105, late 1960s
Paul Evans was born in Pennsylvania in 1931. He studied sculpture, metal work and silver and gold smithing. In the 1950s Evans began his career making copper chests and sculpted steel-front cabinets. In 1964 Evans became the designer for furniture manufacturer Directional Furniture. With them he introduced several series of furniture lines; such as the Argente series of one off studio pieces, Sculpted Bronze series and the popular Cityscape series. His relationship with them set a very high standard for creative manufacturing, insisting that every piece is made and finished by hand under his strict supervision. His pieces were almost always signed and all of the custom items have a signature and a date. Paul Evans' combination of handcraft and technology anticipated the limited edition art furniture of today. His designs are easily identifiable and highly collectable.
