very good original condition
h 39 / d 61 cm
A wonderful, unique piece, finished with three different materials: gilded and enamelled steel, slate, gilded wood. Manufactured by Paul Evans Studio in 1960. The partnership between Paul Evans and Phillip Lloyd Powell marked the beginning of the 1960s American Craft Movement in the United States. The collaboration is the most impressive partnership in American studio furniture history. In contrast to Evans' heavily welded metal designs, Powell's work consisted of hand-carved wood forms with a sinewy, organic quality reminiscent of the feel of a reinterpreted Art Nouveau.
