Matthew Hilton

One of Britain's most esteemed industrial designers and a Royal Designer for Industry, Matthew Hilton has over 30 years of experience in his field, designing for leading manufacturers. His furniture is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Geffrye Museum, London.

Matthew Hilton doesn't believe in design movements, and he really doesn't like the concept of design as fashion. Rather, he thinks the design process is part of the evolution of any object through history.

Working in premium, robust materials including solid hardwood, cast iron, and brass, Hilton creates rigorously functional products that improve with the mark of age. Thinking like a sculptor, Matthew Hilton considers every view of a product equally, allowing for a sense of delight and surprise over the years as the user discovers new details and complexities.
