Greco Disco – Luke Edward Hall
Luke Edward Hall is one of the multi-discipline young stars of the UK design and interiors world. He trained in menswear and after a stint working in the office of Ben Pentreath he now finds himself producing designs across all manner of surfaces from fashion textiles to ceramics and artwork for fashion shows and shop interiors. He calls this book Greco Disco to reflect his interest in classical motifs, from ionic columns and the faces of modern day Greek gods combined with the freedom of a disco, lights, smoke machines et al.
Luke takes a quote from Jean Cocteau at the start of his book and much of his drawing is certainly in the same manner as Cocteau’s. This book is as much a scrapbook of projects and sketches and random postcards pinned on a corkboard as it is overview of his work. It also contains photographs of the flat that he shares with Duncan Campbell, a flat which is surely the most documented interior space of the past 5 years . . . rightly so as it is a showpiece in confident colour and mixing different periods of furniture and art.
