my dentist’s office. i have no shame in admitting that, while sifting through the hundreds of dentists in new york, my primary criteria was the design of the office. i ended up at gotham dental, primarily for aesthetic reasons. the dentist is an art collector with a fabulous sense of design. the waiting room has classic mid-century modern furniture, and each treatment room features a selection of original art. these touches truly makes trips to the dentist a more humane experience. those marco zanuso chairs are without a doubt the most comfortable waiting room furniture i have ever encountered. download a 2004 article from interior design magazine (PDF, annoying) about the design decisions from interior designer doug stiles’ website, here.
