MICHAEL HILAL, a San Francisco-based designer, creates spaces inspired by the ease of living and sun-kissed imperfection of his home state of California. His practice lies at the intersection of interiors, objects, art and fashion and is a nexus for collaboration for makers across diverse creative fields. Subverting the concept of formality in design, Hilal’s spaces are bespoke and put-together, but approachable. He excels at crafting interiors that are distinctive for each client, yet share a common thread—they are relaxing, inviting and effortless.
