Paul Evans, Custom Cloud Pillow Sofa, USA, 1979

This extra-wide, racetrack shaped-sofa is a rare pre-curser to the final creations made in the 80s at the end of Evan’s prolific career.  Made with architectural and futuristic furniture elements,  the voluminous sofa features crescent shaped arm rests and two oversized throw cushions. An under-lit component and recessed chrome base creates a cantilevered, floating effect.

By 1980, Evans had ended his partnership creating unique furniture for Directional to purse his desire to experiment with modular  pieces. He opened a New York City retail showroom at 306 East 61st Street in the Interior Design Building, displaying an array of electronically operated designs and Alucobond furniture. This was a custom piece made in 1979 and has been newly upholstered.The sofa is pictured in Paul Evans: Crossing Boundaries and Crafting Modernism, published for the artist’s double museum retrospective at the Cranbrook Museum of Art and James A. Michener Art Museum in 2014.  (See: Paul Evans: Crossing Boundaries and Crafting Modernism, Constance Kimmerle Ed. p. 30)
