The influential husband-and-wife team lived in the Upper East Side apartment, dubbed a « cultural hub for artists and designers, » for over 30 years.
The 3,900-square-foot, two-floor duplex is housed in a 1907 Italian Renaissance style building originally designed by Charles A. Platt. It boasts almost 20-foot ceilings in the living room with a towering leaded glass window, numerous fireplaces, and 600 linear feet of bookshelves. Massimo and Lella Vignelli bought the three-bedroom, three-and-half-bath home in 1978 and lived there until they passed, he in 2012 and she in 2016. It’s now on the market for $6,500,000 and serves as a testament to the couple’s influential design practice.
