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.
