About

Designed by Vladimir Kagan in the 1967, this Model 6705 Glass-Top Extension dining table's sleek, modern design kept it relevant and prominent throughout the decades and is still on-trend and in-demand by interior designers and collectors to this day. This cubic styled table is perfect either as a dining table, desk or a conference table, as two removable blonde wood leaves border either end of the glass tabletop. The satin aluminum accents offset the luscious, light wood grain of the base and table edges. Original label present under both table leaves. An excellent choice for collector clients, the 1967 Glass-Top Extension Dining Table is described in 'The Complete Kagan, A lifetime of Avant-Garde Design' as 'anchored on a single plinth of wood, was a centerpiece of Kagan's sixties designs and earned him a mechanical patent. The wooden leaves rested on retractable arms and could be stowed in a matching console'. We have three other examples of this design in different woods, such as Rosewood, also a rare double pedestal example with matching bar cabinet, contact us for more details if you are looking a different color, wood or size. This cubist dining table by Vladimir Kagan for Vladimir Kagan Designs work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Post-Modern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Consider pairing with Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin chrome frame dining chairs, Brno chairs by Mies van der Rohe for Knoll International, or Vladimir Kagan dining chairs - contact us for our current selection. MEASUREMENTS: H 29" x W 116" x D 46" Width without leaves: 68" Each leaf measures: 24" Glass top is: 3/4" thick CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with light wear and patina. While the condition is very good and ready to be used immediately, we considered refinishing the table leaves and base to make it "perfect" - but decided to keep the price lower to allow the buyer to decide. If you would like us to refinish the table, you can also select a new stain color at the same time. Contact us for more details and a refinishing quote.

About Vladimir Kagan (Designer)

The pioneers of modern furniture design in America in the mid-20th century all had their moments of flamboyance: Charles and Ray Eames produced the startling, biomorphic La Chaise; George Nelson’s firm created the Marshmallow sofa; Edward Wormley had his decadent Listen to Me chaise. But no designer of the day steadily offered works with more verve and dynamism than Vladimir Kagan. While others, it seems, designed with suburban households in mind, Kagan aimed to suit the tastes of young, sophisticated city-dwellers. With signature designs that feature sleekly curved frames and others that have dramatic out-thrust legs, Kagan made furniture sexy.

     Kagan’s father was a Russian master cabinetmaker who took his family first to Germany (where Vladimir was born) and then to New York in 1938. After studying architecture at Columbia University, Kagan opened a design firm at age 22 and immediately made a splash with his long, low and sinuous Serpentine sofa. Furniture lines such as the Tri-symmetric group of glass-topped, three-legged tables and the vivacious Contours chairs soon followed.

     Kagan’s choices of form and materials evolved through subsequent decades, embracing lucite, aluminum and burl-wood veneers. By the late 1960s, Kagan was designing austere, asymmetrical cabinets and his Omnibus group of modular sofas and chairs. For all his aesthetic élan, Kagan said that throughout his career, his touchstone was comfort. “A lot of modern furniture was not comfortable. And so comfort is: form follows function. The function was to make it comfortable,” he once commented. “I created what I called vessels for the human body.”

     A diverse group of bodies have made themselves at home with Kagan designs. Among the famous names who commissioned and collected his designs are Marilyn Monroe, Gary Cooper, Andy Warhol, David Lynch, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and firms such as Gucci and Giorgio Armani. His work is in numerous museum collections, including those of the Victoria & Albert and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

     Because of its idiosyncrasy, Kagan’s work did not lend itself to mass-production. Kagan never signed on with any of the major furniture-making corporations, and examples of his designs are relatively rare. As you will see from the offerings on these pages, even decades after their conception, Kagan pieces still command the eye, with their freshness, energy, sensuality and wit.
