Paul Evans Sculptured Metal Floor Lamp


A fantastic example of an early, commissioned sculptural steel lamp by Paul Evans, the L-shaped lamp’s square obelisk body is formed from rectilinear sections of welded steel with alternating blackened and polychromed enamel in a patchwork pattern. An unexpected and amusing foot is constructed with an internal light mimicking the torchiere’s main upright light source. The unorthodox form is a testament to Evans’ idiosyncratic approach to design and unwavering confidence as a sculptor.


Paul Evans


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.”
