Full Description

With Vladimir Kagan’s death in 2016, the world of design lost one of its most celebrated practitioners. Pointed Leaf Press is honored to be reissuing, in its third edition: Vladimir Kagan: A Lifetime of Avant-Garde Design. In addition to showcasing Kagan’s unique impact on post-war American design, this book recounts the amazing story of his life, and retains a moving preface by Tom Ford and poignant foreword by the late architect Zaha Hadid. It also features a new afterword by Chris Eitel, who began as an intern at Kagan’s design studio in 2013 and quickly became his protégé, offering an intimate look at the designer and the man. With this first-hand account, Kagan’s life and work is more fully contextualized and his legacy more clearly illuminated.
