vladimir kagan furniture design and the lounge search

a torrential down pour moved through florida early this morning.  i have an outdoor lounge chair search on, and vladimir kagan’s set strikes me on this soggy day as almost perfect.  no damp cloth seats or moldy wood to deal with when our sun returns.

kagan’s simple lines and sweeping curves are most elegant

kagan has some cubist designs i am not so crazy about, but his use of plexiglass and contours combined is interesting
