Lloyd Powell, Phillip

(1919 - 2008)

Phillip Lloyd Powell was a Pennsylvania craftsman and designer, who was an important member of the American studio furniture movement. Powell started making furniture in his family’s basement when he was 16 years old. He studied engineering at the Drexel Institute of Technology and after the war, he opened a workshop in New Hope, Pennsylvania, where George Nakashima also had his studio. Paul Evans (1931-1987) started as Powell's protégé in the workshop around 1955, which led to a collabaration until 1966. Powell staid in New Hope until his death in 2008.
