Awarded the prestigious Design Guild Mark Award, the Eos range, was used in the Olympic Village at the 2012 London games, and remains a firm favourite family of outdoor furniture. The Eos Platform Sun Lounger is a stylish piece, with its generously proportioned surface area placing it firmly at the crossroads of lounge chair and side table, while a pair of wheels on the base allow for it to be moved with ease. The frame is fully constructed from powder-coated aluminium that avoids weathering or rusting over time, while the seat sling is made from Textilene®, an all-weather fabric, and three colour options are available.
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.
