A former metalworker, Paul Evans set up his own design studio in 1955 and, over the course of decades, became known for his sculpture, furniture, and contributions to the American Studio Craft Movement in the ’70s.

He also embraced and pioneered the integration of technology into design, including features such as remote-controlled doors and shelves in his creations.
