Paul Evans Argente Cube Table


Description/

Paul Evans’ technically intensive Argente Series, which was produced from 1967 through 1972, was an experimental process using 1/8 inch thick aluminum sheets. Blackened with ink, the aluminum was then sanded, buffed, textured with a torch, and scratched to produce unique sgraffito markings. Because of the toxic fumes produced when welding aluminum, the Argente line was short-lived, making pieces in this style exceedingly rare and highly sought after. Each piece perfectly encapsulates Evans’ penchant for experimental processes to achieve a new vision in metalworking.


Paul Evans

designer

Paul Evans (1931-1987) was an iconic American furniture designer, sculptor, and artist who is famous for his contributions to the American Craft Movement of the 1970s and for his work with the influential American manufacturer Directional Furniture. Paul Evans’ Brutalist-inspired sculpted metal furnishings distinguish him from others in the world of design.

Performer Lenny Kravitz, a collector of Evans pieces, describes his distinctive work as “stunningly beautiful, stunningly ugly, stunningly tacky, [and] stunningly sophisticated.”
