Inside Roman & Williams

The Scout just released its second film in their craftsmanship series and we have to say, it's nothing short of stunning. They take us inside the studios of Roman & Williams—the happening design firm behind such spots as the Ace and Standard hotels in New York. Partners Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch dive into their thought process along with the importance of texture and history. According to the Scout, "Alesch still renders all of their presentations by hand, a skill he has preserved and honed from an early age. And Standefer evolved her skills as a painter into creating sets for the likes of Scorsese."
