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.Born in 1957, Hilton studied at Portsmouth College of Art and then at Kingston Polytechnic. After graduating he worked for Capa as an industrial designer and model maker. He then set up his own design studio/workshop 1984. SCP was the first manufacturer to produce Hilton's work; Hilton's Bow shelves were launched by SCP at the Milan Furniture Fair in 1986.Twenty seven years on, SCP and Matthew Hilton continue to collaborate, producing seminal furniture such as the Balzac armchair, Oscar range and Compass table to name but a few. While continuing his relationship with SCP, Hilton has rounded out his design portfolio with work for many other international manufacturers including Driade, Disform, Case furniture, Sawaya and Moroni, XO, Montis, Perobell, Lusty‚ Lloyd Loom and Habitat. In 2007 he launched his own critically acclaimed collection of designs at 100% Design.This year, SCP launched the latest edition to the Oscar range, an upholstered bed.
