Design Vladimir Kagan2020
- Initially designed and produced for a limited run in the 1960s, the Hindsight Sofa was redeveloped from the Kagan archive.
- Poised between a chaise lounge and a curved sofa, the styling captures old Hollywood glamour with an undulating backrest and sinuous curves.
- The Lucite bases make it appear to hover just above the floor.
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.
