The Glittering Dream Office

A six-story structure in New York City’s trendy Meatpacking District, Diane von Furstenberg's studio headquarters houses the company’s flagship store, a 5,000 square foot flexible space for events and a showroom, as well as offices for 120. Oh, and there's a penthouse apartment. What's that diamond-faceted atrium perched on top? Furnished in rich furs and playful pinks, it is von Furstenberg's lavish take on the concept of the corner office. The space is designed to reflect and refract the abundant light from above. Swarovski crystals hang from the ceiling and washes down the grand, perforated staircase, which has been dubbed the "stairdelier." By design, it seems, no expense was spared in creating this sparkly gem.
