David Adjaye for Knoll

It's no wonder that Ghana-born, London-based architect David Adjaye routinely tops lists of favorite living architects and is one of the most sought after contemporary practitioners. His sensibility is subtle, expressing geometry and materials in a sculptural approach that's sensitive to context. His diverse portfolio includes public projects, cultural institutions (his firm, Adjaye Associates, was tapped to design the forthcoming National Museum of African American History and Culture), master plans, and residences (his Sunken House appeared in a 2008 issue of Dwell). Adjaye's latest project is a collection of furniture for Knoll. We sent a few questions his way to learn more. Read the interview in the slideshow that follows and catch an exhibition of the new furniture line along with Adjaye's architectural projects at Knoll's New York home design shop at 1330 Avenue of the Americas October 2 through 31, Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Dwell was proud to be the media sponsor for this year's 2nd Annual Picnic By Design. The charity event attracted over 200 talented designers and philanthropists, all there to support DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS. The rooftop of the iconic Scholastic building in Soho painted the perfect backdrop for the colorful soiree, which raised over $30,000 for the organization. A group of 45 A-list designers created one-of-a-kind basket settings for guests, including picnic chic creations from Eric Cohler, Tyler Wisler, Marie Aiello, Laura Anderson Barbata, Mike Perry, Jerry Schwartz, Robyn Lea, Toda, Mike Brown (LOT 71), and many more.
