Paul Evans, Set of Three Custom Polished Steel Cylinder Cabinets, USA, c 1980
This unique set of three monumental polished steel semi-cylindrical cabinets is a wonderful example of Evans’ architectural and futuristic furniture pieces created at the end of his prolific career in the 1980s. Evocative of the era in which they were made, the voluminous cabinets feature circular double doors open and close with gliders and pivot hinges. Each interior reveals ample space with shelves and hooks.
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 stainless steel case pieces, electronically operated designs, and Alucobond furniture.
