Matthew Hilton excels in upholstery design, his freehand approach and depth of understanding of the materials in play allow him to create refined sculptural pieces that have real strength of character. This piece has a very modern attitude, but was inspired by the many examples of open armed chair and sofa designs from the Victorian and Edwardian period. Hilton has utilised the traditional techniques available at the SCP specialist upholstery factory to create a design that has subtle curves and a striking silhouette.
The frame is made from hardwood ply and beech, with ash legs and arms. The chair is upholstered with rubberised coconut hair, wool felt, needled wool and recycled foam. The seat is pocket sprung and the back is elasticated web. Made at SCP’s specialist upholstery factory in Norfolk, England, using sustainable materials.
