Vladimir Kagan for Dreyfuss, 'Contour' chair model 'VK 100', teak, fabric, United States, 1950s
This lounge chair by Kagan is sculptural and delicate. The frame is executed in teak, carved and detailed in an exquisite manner. The back legs are long and protrude elegantly outwards. There are several versions of the ‘Contour’ chair by Kagan. As Kagan explains himself, the chairs are designed in an organic manner. One form leads to the next. This particular version features a pull-out foot rest that is hidden in the seat when not in use. The seat itself can be adjusted in its angle to that the lounge chair transforms into a chaise longue.
Vladimir Kagan (1927-2016) was born in Germany and grew up in the United States where his father opened a cabinet shop. Later, Kagan joined the family business. Here the designer experimented with organically sculpted wood in works that become the hallmarks of his career. Kagan himself explains that his father always said 'measure three times and cut once' whereas Kagan did exactly the opposite. He also believed that there was no way that ratio could replace dumb luck. Kagan's furniture has the extraordinary ability to completely change the landscape of the room even it is with one single object.
