Robert Bristow and Pilar Proffitt are the founding partners of Bristow Profitt Studio, a multi-disciplinary design studio focusing on architecture, interiors and furniture. From a converted dairy barn in Lakeville, CT, the pair aims to produce work that has its own palpable presence. They seek the common threads of simplicity, elegance and permanence, expressed clearly and quietly in all that they make. Trained in the architecture offices of Paul Rudolph and Peter Forbes, with moonlighting stints as Studio Aldo Rossi and Machado-Silvetti, the pair received the commission to design the Hotel RALPH PUCCI. They joined RALPH PUCCI in 2004.
