Floating on air
- By the late 1960s and ’70s, Kagan found it irresistible to bring organic shapes to his plexiglass furniture.
- The curvaceous Lotus Chair is made of ½” thick luxurious Lucite that is shaped and polished, giving its upholstered seat the appearance of floating in the room.
- Whether pulled up at a dining table or nestled into a corner, this chair is always an illusionary delight.
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.
