The June 2016 issue of Architectural Digest—"The Great Design Issue"—spotlights designs by Knoll in a "Great Design" shopping guide and a feature story on Alex Rodriguez's home.
The Bertoia Diamond Chair in Gold is the full-page opening for the issue's "Great Design: AD's Ultimate Shopping Guide" section. Knoll introduced the 18-karat gold-plated finish on the Diamond Chair in celebration of Harry Bertoia's Centennial.
The issue also showcases the home of longtime New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, featuring a number of Knoll pieces in the athlete's bar lounge and office. In the bar, Platner Easy Chairs and Ottoman in a dusty blue complement the room's palette and bring a soft counterpoint to a Holly Hunt concrete bench by Eric Slayton. In the office, a Diane von Furstenburg carpet is paired with Saarinen Executive Arm Chairs and an oval Florence Knoll Table Desk.
A spread from the June 2016 issue of Architectural Digest shows Alex Rodriguez's home, featuring designs by Eero Saarinen, Florence Knoll and Warren Platner. Photographs are by Bjorn Wallander.
