Since launching his own studio four years ago, London-based artist and designer Luke Edward Hall has practically been working nonstop. There's a high chance you already own something with his touch—a pair of velvet Stubbs & Wootton slippers from their latest collaboration; a colorful drinks table he designed with The Lacquer Company; ceramics with Richard Ginori; the list goes on.

Or you might have recently bought his first book, Greco Disco: The Art & Design of Luke Edward Hall, which came out in September. Currently, Hall is working on the interiors and art direction of a new hotel in Paris that will open next spring. During a rare moment of free time, the design connoisseur spoke to T&C about the products he loves, trusts, and swears by every day.

THINGS YOU LOVE TO COLLECT...

Old and rare art and design books for inspiration, glittery brooches for my jackets, and interesting and odd ceramics, which I scatter around my home.

BEST TRIP EVER…

A few years ago we did the drive from Los Angeles up to San Francisco. We stayed for a few days in Big Sur and I fell in love with it all: the towering redwoods, the smell of the sea, and the morning fog. It felt completely otherworldly.
