Designs for the City

Cityscape is the last great series designed by Paul Evans. While Evans’ early work relies on decoration, Cityscape flattens the decorative elements and focuses on the play of light over pure form. A relentless designer, the series displays a proliferation of works and endless variations within the simplified structure of the panels. It achieves something rare in the world of craft by being in dialog with the avant-garde of interior design. Still chic today, these works add contrast and light to any interior. 

Paul Evans: Designs for the City features 35 lots covering the major variations of forms and material expressed in his Cityscape line.

“Out of a new technology… comes a
startling, unique furniture concept.”
