Phillip Lloyd Powell
American, 1919–2008
Follow

Often described as a “midcentury modernist”, American designer Phillip Lloyd Powell created pieces that transcended the Modernist style in both form and application. Instead of using industrial methods and techniques for production, the designer practiced hand carving as a way to bring out the natural form of the wood through careful manipulation. He is best known for his cabinets, which when opened would reveal beautiful detailing inside, as well as interiors lined with silver leaf or fabric. Besides wood, Powell favored modern materials like metal, stone, and slate to create the clean and precise lines that would become a trademark of his designs.
