Designers I Love: Vladimir Kagan

eHow Home Blog

Bimorphic modernism. Kind of a mouthful, but really it’s a fairly simple design concept that’s based on mimicking the form and structure of living organisms. And Vladimir Kagan is one of the best in the bimorphic business. The fluid lines and modern shapes of his designs are smooth as silk…and each piece he creates is sculptural, as well as functional.

The above represents some of his first works in plastic, which are lovely, but I’m also a fan of his more traditional work. This bronze sculpture reminds me of the horns of a bull, yet it is also elegant and sinuous. I’m usually not a fan of sculpture, but this piece I could easily live around.

He aptly calls this piece the Contour Sofa. I’m betting it would fit the body like a glove, and I love that it appears as an extra-wide chair. Definitely a new trend emerging here.

The design of the mod-meets-sophisticated Hurricane Chair is fun – its asymmetrical lines give it such movement. This chair would add a splash of cool to a living room, or even the corner of a bedroom.
