"Their interiors are a canvas of colors, objects, art and collections that are appropriate for the spaces they design. Whether it be a Quirk Hotel, a modern translation of a west-indies property, or a coffee shop they find a way to hit the right notes that speak to the places, the location, the clientele."
ROBERT BRISTOW and PILAR PROFFITT are partners in BRISTOW | PROFFITT Studio, a multidisciplinary Architecture and Interior Design firm.
Robert takes a straightforward approach to design, where the output is the offspring of a clear idea expressed with elemental materials and simple processes.
Pilar is the interior design arm of the duo. Every piece is carefully orchestrated to give the whole a gentle balance of both the masculine and feminine.
Together the duo have combined their talents to design houses, hotels, and public buildings such as Quirk Hotel, Harney Tea Room SoHo, and Hotel Ralph Pucci.
