Vladimir Kagan Sectional Sofa & Chair Suite for Directional

18,500.00

Curvaceous kidney shaped sofa with matching swivel lounge chair by Vladimir Kagan for Directional, circa 1985.
Flowing lines and deep cushions offer decadent comfort and visual exuberance as only a Kagan design can... can...
Sofa sections easily come apart into three parts by lifting out of large dowel like inserts one from the other for easy transport.
Seating, along with supporting circular pods, all newly upholstered in warm ivory colored 100% wool.  Fresh high density foam inside delivers plush but firm support.
See close-ups of wandering stitch runs forming proper diagonal sections to complement flowing forms.
Swivel base to chair newly coated in matching ivory epoxy supported by bullet proof swivel mechanism which turns easily but returns to fixed/favored position upon sitter’s departure.
Structurally solid with no loose parts or ill fitting components.  All is snug.
Flowing kidney shape provides Kagan the opportunity to quote his midcentury bon fides with his similarly singular post modern style-that is an over-the-top, Dionysian, biomorphic vernacular popularized by Zaha Hadid and other post modern prophets as opposed to the Euclidean/Platonic tendencies of the Memphis school.. Interesting that Post Modern is not even a period choice offered by 1st Dibs.
The libido driven Kagan just cannot be contained by any 1st Dibs category for post-postwar design.
Generous sitting area above tapered base floats along sharp bevel crowned with a supple flowing back which echoes the seat form and gently crosses over into sitting area at one end traversing this shifting tectonic island for living and-in it's own way-going out of it's way to not only animate a room but also support whatever limb may cross its path…
