Photographs by Brad Stein appear in the Departures profile of Joe Harper's home.
In its September 2016 Fall Fashion Issue, Departures features the home of Departures Associate Editor Joe Harper, with a spotlight on the editor's use of classic and contemporary Knoll pieces. The piece, titled "House Tour: How I Live in New York Now," includes photography by Brad Stein of Harper's residential loft in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City.
Harper's home includes classic modern designs by Eero Saarinen and Richard Schultz as well as contemporary designs by Markus Jens and Jürgen Laub, Joseph D'Urso, and Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. As the editor explains, the choices reflect his and his partner's love for Knoll, which was sparked by friend (and Knoll CEO) Andrew Cogan.
In the open dining and living room, Saarinen Executive Chairs and D'Urso Swivel Chairs echo each other's curves. A Jehs+Laub Lounge Chair and Ottoman in natural leather provides a comfortable seat from which to take in the adjoining outdoor deck. Outside, Richard Schultz's 1966 Dining Chairs provide seating for al fresco meals with friends and family. Throughout, a subdued palette of warm browns and classic blues unify the duplex's areas.
"My favorite element? The outdoor shower, just steps from our bedroom, which I use year-round, even when snow is falling," writes Harper in the piece. A Barber & Osgerby Piton™ Outdoor Stool provides the perfect accompaniment.
