Tour the Unsurprisingly Mod, Pristine Digs of Knoll's CEO

New, 1 comment

In the June issue of Architectural Digest: the airy, streamlined home of Andrew Cogan, a glassy estate built from scratch by architect Michael Haverland and interior designer Philip Galanes on Shelter Island, the artsier-than-the-Hamptons community plopped between the North and South Forks of Long Island. The team's primary design objective was emphasize to the "light and sky and water" with a large open dining room, and a "new, dramatic steel-and-glass extension," but not without dotting the place with midcentury finds manufactured by Knoll, where Cogan is CEO.

Galanes, who had previously worked with the Cogan family on their Manhattan townhouse, peppered the spread—which the design duo (also a couple) wanted to be luxurious, but "respectful to the landscape and the low-key aspect of the island," according to Arch Digest. Perched in the living room are 1950s chairs by Edward Wormley, a '60s Franco Albini rattan ottoman, a Mies van der Rohe Barcelona daybed, and, duh, Saarinen chairs.

The dining area (above) features a fireplace made of local river stone and Mies van der Rohe chairs covered in Edelman leather, and the master bedroom (below) has a lemon Saarinen chair and ottoman, plus textiles from India.
