Agnieszka Pikus, Evo

EVO is a furniture brand which belongs to the Paged Collection. The project was introduced to production at the beginning of this year, and he was first presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in 2014.

EVO is a project inspired by tradition. The starting point was the Thonet chair model from the end of the 19th century. The bent backrest and unusual placement of legs became an inspiration for the current project. The number of legs was reduced during the design process, which resulted in a fresh form. The furniture’s distinguishing features are lightness and minimalism.

EVO is produced using traditional technology of bending wood. Beech and oak timber are used in the production process. The EVO family consists of: an armchair, an upholstered armchair and a hooker.
