I have read David Keeps’ article “The Rise of Neo-Brutalist Design” in the WSJ, presenting contemporary designers who revisit Brutalism by creating furniture and objects in what he calls 'Neo-Brutalism.' Keeps mentions Paul Evans whose work he categorized as Brutalist, neglecting to mention that only a very small portion of Evans’ work, the early work, is ought to be called ‘Brutalist,’ (see my video on Paul Evans, produced by Antonia Marrero). Brutalism was a politically- and socially-charged Movement, which
gained momentum in the US, UK, Israel, and elsewhere in the mid-century years, as responding to economically depressed issues. It manifested in forward-moving, progressive urban housing, with rough concrete and fortress-like forms, which became its signature style. I have to admit that see little resemblance between the contemporary furniture mentioned here, and what was created by Brutalists such as Paul Evans.
