A technical triumph
- In 1965, Kagan introduced the Cycle II Chair, his first foray into the new technique of wood bending.
- Kagan designed custom stainless-steel bolts to connect the seat to its frame, which also served as decorative accents.
- With a focus on material, this chair boasts supreme craftsmanship and variety in several wood and finish combinations.
Vladimir Kagan pioneered the enduring voice of midcentury modern design. A designer of not simply furniture but what he called “vessels to hold the human body,” Kagan joined the portfolio in 2016, personally entrusting his legacy to HOLLY HUNT. Kagan’s designs radiate his vitality and passion for discovery. Born in Worms, Germany in 1927, he emigrated to the U.S. at the age of 11, just before the dawn of WWII. From his father’s repeated admonishment “Ehre das Handwerk!” (“Honor the handcraft!”), Vladimir inherited an appreciation of artisan skill which, combined with his innovative design sensibility, was key to his success.
