Paul Evans was a leading figure in the mid-century American Brutalist furniture movement. An example of his work is available in the upcoming Design auction, presented by Wright. The Argente cabinet designed by Evans includes two doors concealing storage and one adjustable shelf. Along with furniture, the event offers over 200 lots of carpets, sculptures, dinnerware, jewelry, and more.
A Conoid platform bed will be available from George Nakashima. The American designer brought out the distinct qualities of wood through his work. He believed that each piece of wood had a distinct purpose: “Each flitch, each board, each plank can have only one ideal use,” he remarked. “The woodworker, applying a thousand skills, must find that ideal use and then shape the wood to realize its true potential.” Also presented is a hand-woven Strålarna flatweave carpet by Marianne Richter. Her designs for the Märta Måås-Fjetterström workshop are characterized by geometric patterns and vivid color combinations. Browse the full catalog and register for online bidding by visiting Wright.
