For a man who owns exuberant art and dramatic furniture in the residences he keeps in Los Angeles and the Hamptons, Star’s New York loft is a whisper. Awards? On a shelf in his library in Los Angeles. As he observes, “Here, even the brick is quiet.”

But there is an animating concept in this home, an echo of the theme that has powered Star’s shows: the idea of the nonnuclear family as a circle. In the dining area, a round table sits on a square carpet with a circular insert. A visitor instinctively gravitates to this table, which is multipurpose, serving as Star’s desk and dining and conference table. Sitting here with friends and colleagues, he lives out the emotional environment of his best-known shows. “It’s subliminal simplicity—the circle embraces you,” Mindel explains. “You don’t notice. You’re not supposed to.”

In the living room, your eye is first drawn to the Frank Gehry chairs of corrugated cardboard and the large black Richard Serra painting. Only then do you notice the more subtle touches. “The stripes in the rug make the space seem wider,” Mindel says, “and the palette echoes the bricks of the building across the street.” Finally, “because the art grows out of the space,” your eye rests on a pale circle: a hollowed-out artwork by Jose Dávila that fills most of the brick wall. ออกแบบบ้าน
