Vladimir Kagan (29/8/1927 – 7/4/2016) was an American interior designer. Arriving in the US as a young man, he studied architecture at Columbia University before joining his father’s carpentry shop.
In 1947 he opened his own shop on East 65 th Street, New York. From 1950 to 1960 he worked with the printer and textile designer Hugo Dreyfuss.
Kagan’s strikingly modern, sculpture-like furniture soon became very successful and iconic, above all, the winding ‘Serpentine Sofa’ (1949).
His works are part of numerous private and public collections, such as those of the New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art and London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, his works are widely acclaimed.
