Understated and refined, the Ballet bench feels fresh yet familiar, designed to emphasise the beauty of solid oak. Featuring a generous seat surface, the bench can comfortably seat up to four people. Designed to accompany the Case Furniture Ballet Table, the bench tucks neatly underneath the table when not in use. Versatile and timeless, the bench can be incorporated into other living spaces such as a hallway, or at the end of a bed.
Born in 1957, British furniture designer Matthew 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 went on to set up his own design studio/workshop in 1984. In 1986, SCP was the first designer furniture manufacturer to produce Hilton’s work. Several years on, SCP and Matthew Hilton continue to collaborate, producing modern furniture such as the SCP Oscar Sofa and Compass desk.
Matthew Hilton has since gone on to work with many international furniture manufacturers including CASE, Montis, Authentics and De La Espada.
