Where form meets function

Phillips de Pury & Company will be holding a design auction this coming Saturday at their Horwick Place, London location. The lots are largely quite dull, but a few standouts pop out. Included in that select handful is the above pictured pair of “Contour” lounge chairs and ottomans. Designed by Vladamir Kagan in 1955, the pieces are made of walnut with leather upholstery and were manufactured by Kagan-Dreyfus, USA. The chevron base of the ottoman really captures the spirit of the era.
