Vladimir Kagan: A Lifetime in Avant Garde Design
With Vladimir Kagan’s death in 2016, the world of design lost one of its most celebrated practitioners. Pointed Leaf Press is honored to be reissuing, in its third edition: Vladimir Kagan: A Lifetime of Avant Garde Design. The new book, in addition to showcasing Kagan’s unique impact on post-war American design, recounts the amazing story of his life, and retains a moving preface by Tom Ford and poignant foreword by the late architect Zaha Hadid. It features a new afterword by Chris Eitel, who began as an intern in the Kagan Studio and now leads design and production at the Vladimir Kagan Design Group. Kagan’s life and work are more fully contextualized, and his legacy still more clearly illuminated. Don’t miss the final chance to own the definitive tribute to this design icon. VLADIMIR KAGAN is one of the most widely acclaimed designers of our times. Born in Germany, he and his family fled Nazism and settled in New York. His brilliant success as a furniture craftsman and designer, is premised on combining the functional sensibility of modernism with comfort, and a softer, more inviting aesthetic.
