"Phe-Phe Club Chair" Blackened Steel, Brass and Walnut Wood Lounge Chair

$6,500per item


The "Phe-Phe" club chair is who it is, It cant be anything else. This piece was inspired by the undeniably vivacious nature of Evans Z. Crane's 3 year old daughter, and the realization that we can spend our whole lives trying to get back to how well we know ourselves in the first years of childhood. The Design of this chair could not be reasoned with, value engineered, refined or reworked, it just was. The blackened steel components give it an industrial, even Neo- Brutalist feel. The thick hand carved solid black Walnut arm rests and side panels temper the steels raw look with smooth lacquered luxurious surfaces. Tied together with the playful "De-islas" custom fabric and the punctuated with polished Brass hemispherical feet. The personality of this chair cannot be denied. Just like Evans daughter Delphine, or Phe Phe, for short.

About the Maker

Evan Z. Crane

Evan Z. Crane is a Brooklyn born designer and manufacturer of bespoke sculptural furnishings. Growing up in south Brooklyn the industrial landscape had a profound effect on him. The stark geometry of his surroundings were deeply inspiring throughout his childhood and early creative career. Drawing upon that inspiration to fuel his vision, he creates not just furniture but obsessively designed objects imbued with personality. Every aspect of a piece is derived from a vision that cannot be reasoned with. Evan will reject redesigns and revisions, always striving for the original conception. In his heart Evan believes that if he stays true to his vision, the work will not only speak for itself, but live on with its own personality, long after it has left his workshop. Still Fully immersed in the industrial landscape he produces work from his studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and resides in Gowanus Brooklyn with his wife and daughter.
