    Experience the pinnacle of Brutalist design with the extraordinary Paul Evans “Stalagmite” dining table, Model PE-102, from the revered "Sculptured Metal Collection" created for Directional. This commanding piece, signed and dated 'PE 70' on the lower edge of the base, represents the zenith of 1970s art furniture, a period when design broke free from tradition and embraced the bold and the avant-garde.

    Crafted during a time when furniture was redefined as sculptural art, this dining table is a testament to the genius of Paul Evans, a visionary whose work blurred the lines between function and sculpture. The table is not merely a piece of furniture but a centerpiece, a conversation starter, and a powerful statement.

    The dramatic and sculptural base of this masterpiece is a formidable S-shaped structure measuring 67 inches in width and 29 inches in depth, constructed from a resilient steel framework. It is adorned with a thick impasto of golden bronze resin, meticulously applied to create an organic yet fierce form. The 13 vertical supports rise from the ground like stalagmites, each one unique, their shapes conjuring the raw beauty of a natural cave formation.

    Resting upon this formidable base is an expansive, oval glass top, ¾ inch thick and measuring an impressive 96 by 48 inches. This generous surface not only serves as a functional dining area but also allows the extraordinary base to be viewed from all angles, ensuring that the artistry of Evans’ work is always the focal point.

    Owning this table is not just an investment in furniture; it is an investment in a piece of history, an emblem of a movement that celebrated raw, unrefined beauty in the face of the sleek and modern. This dining table is a rare opportunity to incorporate a museum-quality work into your private collection, a piece that carries the legacy of Paul Evans' innovative spirit and unparalleled craftsmanship.
