“I-Beam Couch” Steel, Oxidized Maple and Lacquered Aluminum I-Beam Modern Couch

$11,000per item

About

The "I-beam Couch", has got some big personality. Perfectly emphasized by the custom lacquered aluminum I - beam penetrating a hand turned oxidized maple foot, this piece is completely individual in its design. Intended to be a show stopper the I-beam couch would be a feature piece in any home, office, gallery and hospitality space. Evan drew upon all of his influences during its conception, the beam couch is a blend of Mid-Century modern, industrial arts and neo-brutalisim. He goes on to say, "Honestly, I had very little control over the design, the forms really materialized in my brain all by themselves. All I could do was try to stay as true to my original vision as possible. I knew that if I could do that, the I-beam couch would truly live on its own after I finished crafting it". The features are of coarse fully customizable, each owner can select materials and finishes that speak to them in the same way the I-beam couch spoke to its creator.

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.
