Showing all 2 results
Vladimir Kagan was born in Worms on the Rhine, Germany in 1927. When he was barely 11 years old he emigrated to the United States in 1938. His first passion was painting and sculpture but he progressively became absorbed by his curiosity in the fields of architecture and design where he developed exceptional skills thanks to his natural talent. Son of a master cabinetmaker, Illi Kagan, Vladimir studied Architecture at Columbia University. At the age of twenty, in 1947 he joined his father and began working in his woodworking shop. It is from that starting point that he would learn furniture making from the ground up.
