Their works incorporate simple forms and colors to create bold yet meditative pieces. Each project begins with the Irwin sisters listening carefully to their client’s dreams. Back in the studio, they bring their extensive experience to bear on the project, and a design emerges that belongs as much to the client as it is does to the artists. New York By Rail | 77
