Congratulating Suzy Slesin, publisher of Pointed Leaf Press and Vladimir Kagan for the upcoming revised edition of "The Complete Kagan: Vladimir Kagan, A Lifetime of Avant Garde Design." The new volume contains a foreword by Zaha Hadid, as well as Kagan’s recent work. Since 2004, Kagan’s international reach has grown by leaps and bounds, in showrooms in France and Italy, and with commissions for high-end interiors by some of the world’s leading architects and interior designers, such as Amy Lau who appeared as a speaker in the fall 2014 edition of my program Collecting Design (a photo of her breathtaking interior utilizing Kagan's special commission pieces is below, published by AD). Beginning with his childhood in Germany and his family’s escape from Nazi power, Kagan chronicles his rise to become one of America’s most celebrated designers. Combining sophisticated aesthetic with comfort and modernistic sensibility are the hallmark of his enduring career. Cannot wait to read this revised edition.
