Margaret Russell, editor-in-chief of Architectural Digest, said of the firm in the New York Times: "They had a great appreciation for structure as well as materials and texture. They were always figuring out how to make something more minimal and streamlined. The product would be pure and beautiful, but there was a complicated thought process behind that purity.”
