modern minimal - [ the need for space ]


-- sometimes beauty lives within the walls of pure white rooms.













Modern Minimal brings the calm of clean lines and leaves open space for peace. When it comes to the modern decor lifestyle, there definitely is a place for well defined edges + precise forms. Using hand-skills based manufacturing, the Matthew Hilton Collection is far from mass produced and is only crafted in relatively small quantities using innovative techniques and materials. With his design process so precise and his inspirations so diverse -- from architecture to art to utilitarian wares -- this line is a must see for any modern decor enthusiast.

[the goods: 1 & 2.> tapas dining chair, solid wood or beech plywood w/veneer. 3.> colombo dining chair, solid wood: american black walnut or white oak. 4.> I-beam side table 5.> light extending table, engineered solid wood: american black walnut or white oak. note: click on image to see beauty in the need for space]



...The design process is part of the evolution of any object through history ~ MH

Matthew Hilton knows Modern Minimal. After graduating with a degree in Furniture Design from Kingston Polytechnic in 1979 he started to design + build a range of objects using low-tech casting techniques. Check out his design process + some of the inspiration behind his cutting edge forms at www.matthewhilton.com
