Some of the most favourite objects in my home come from a friend’s shop, Larache in Calvert Street, London. The quietly spoken Hassan Hajjaj, is both artist and designer of ‘things’ that you’re never quite sure if you want to wear, sit on or just look at. His work has been all over the place from the Hayward Gallery to the permanent collection at Victoria & Albert Museum as well as designing the fabulous Andy Wahloo bar in Paris. I was lucky enough to photograph his Riad in Marrakech for Selina Lake’s book ‘Bazaar Style’ and also for a feature story. He is known for designing T shirts for MoMo as well as for a host of other interesting people and has recently made some quite unbelievable sofas covered in funky Moroccan blankets.
