Snail coffee table by Vladimir Kagan, 1970s
Vladimir Kagan (1927-2016) was a highly influential American furniture designer known for his mid-century modern designs that emphasize comfort, functionality, and modernity. His style, inspired by a wide range of sources including antiques, nature, and the Bauhaus, has made him a household name in the world of design. The European Magazine has called him "one of the most important furniture designers of the 20th century" and a "creative grandfather of a whole new generation of designers." This elegant coffee table, designed by Kagan in the 1970s, features a spiral base reminiscent of a snail's structure. The base is made of wood and each curvature is easily detachable and made by interlocking.
The base of the spiral was painted, and the glass top exhibits minor scratches.
