Things We Made—A stunning retrospective of the work of the ‘dynamic duo of design’ known as Roman and Williams.
What do Manhattan’s Ace Hotel, The Standard Hotel, and the campus food hall of the new corporate digs of Facebook all have in common? Aside from being beautiful examples of a truly unique, multilayered approach to interior design that mixes Modernism while respecting history, all three, (and many other famous projects), are the handiwork of renowned New York-based design firm, Roman And Williams. First featured in A Life Designed in the post; The Timeless Design of R+W, a new book commemorating their tenth anniversary has just been released and it is a feast for the eyes and design soul!
A Multi-talented duo, Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch bring their rich and varied experience as architects, interior designers, furniture designers and painters to their work, all of which is beautifully captured and documented in this new book. Complete with stunning photography and working sketches from the team, ‘Things We Made’ is an insightful snapshot of a creative team at the height of their powers… A truly fascinating read.
