Evan Z. Crane is a Brooklyn born designer and manufacturer of fine furnishings. Growing up in south Brooklyn the industrial landscape had a profound effect on him. He immersed himself in the stark geometry of his surroundings. Drawing upon that inspiration to fuel his vision, he creates not just furniture but functional sculpture imbued with personality. It is obsession that drives his designs. Every aspect of a piece is derived from a vision that cannot be reasoned with. 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 furniture from his studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and resides in Gowanus Brooklyn with his wife and daughter.
