About

This mesmerizing and grand (60" x 60") handmade Vladimir Kagan studio dining table, which is large enough to also be a conference table, features a stunning quilted maple top and is large enough to comfortably seat eight chairs. This piece is signed with Vladimir Kagan Designs studio label underneath the top and reads: Handmade in the Workshops of Vladimir Kagan. The Quilted Maple top is in excellent, near mint condition and incredibly stunning - a repeating pattern which mesmerizes and captivates. Imagine putting your favorite place settings and centerpiece on this table and entertaining guests - this large table can seat eight people with two on each side. The top can be removed from the base to make it easier to fit through doors and hallways when moving. The lacquered burgundy edge and base are in very good condition but does have light wear and patina. The brass trim to the lower base has moderate patina on each side. The lacquered wood could be refinished and the brass trim can replaced with new brass (or other finish) trim. This would also allow changing the color scheme and style if desired. This is an incredible 1970s piece that could easily translate into an 1980s Postmodern piece with a change to a different color and perhaps chrome trim to the lower base instead of brass. Options Galore! This Vladimir Kagan for Vladimir Kagan Designs dining (or conference / meeting / banquet) table would work great in a Postmodern, Mid-Century Modern, Scandinavian Modern or Danish modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism 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. Measurements: H 30.5" x 60.5" x 60.5" Condition: Quilted Maple top is excellent, in near mint condition. Lacquered edge and base is in very good condition with minor wear including nicks and scratches, mostly concentrated on one side. Brass trim to lower base has moderate patina on all sides. Overall presents very well and ready for immediate use.

About the Maker

Vladimir Kagan

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 1stDibs, even decades after their conception, Kagan pieces still command the eye, with their freshness, energy, sensuality and wit.
