I started Matthew Hilton, the company, because I wanted somewhere I would have complete creative control.
Matthew Hilton, England
The company was launched in September 2007 and very soon after, made it's first Licence agreement for manufacturing and distribution of the products with De La Espada. The pieces shown here are the first of a growing number of high-quality products which will be made in relatively small quantities, using hand-skills based manufacturing. I will be regularly adding new products using different techniques and materials.The furniture shown here will be available for sale by March or April 2008.
I liased closely with Spin, the designers of the website and our company identity, to make it direct and open. We will show you the design process, some of the inspiration behind the work and the making of the products. We will bring you elements of inspirational culture, photos and articles about things which interest us, whether they be buildings, furniture, travel, exhibitions or design reports.
