Matthew Hilton to Launch Four New Products at 100% Design
Matthew Hilton will launch four new products at 100% Design this September extending the product range to eleven pieces. New products include Manta Chair, a stackable dining chair with a sculptural unification between the back and arm rest; Tapas Chair, a light, high-backed, three-legged dining chair inspired by the strong forms of Spain‚s characteristic objects; Fracture Table, a coffee table composed of three geometrically freeform tables that can be used together or separately; and Hepburn Sofa, a unique modular seating system with almost limitless configurations. The Hepburn Sofa has been shortlisted for a Blueprint Design Award, which will be announced on 19 September 2008.
The Matthew Hilton furniture brand was established to give the designer complete creative freedom and was launched at 100% Design in 2007. The result is a sculptural range of solid wood furniture with technical ingenuity. Produced under license by De La Espada, the range benefits from the combined expertise of the collaborators, the products produced with the highest attention to quality of materials and manufacturing.
