Other than the conversion of the dining room into a library and a den into office space in 2000, the apartment has remained largely unchanged since the 1970s.
“Some people might see this as dated,” [Luca] Vignelli said. But much of the apartment feels timeless, as his parents intended, he added: “I would love to see somebody who appreciates the space and their presence in the space” as a buyer.
The design legacy of the late Lella and Massimo Vignelli lives on in their New York home, which will be listed for $6.5 million. The home hasn’t changed much since the couple bought it in 1978. Their children Luca and Valentina Vignelli, who are selling the duplex because they both live elsewhere, are hoping they can find the right buyer.
