Cross Extending table By Case

Cross Extending table

By
Case

The Cross dining table by Matthew Hilton is a fine example of advanced wood manufacturing techniques. Made from a solid wood base, with a veneered top, it has two extendable leaves that are stored in the frame when the table is in a closed position. The table is large, yet retains a visual balance due to its unusually thick top. The design of the base allows for 6 to 8 chairs, or 12 to 14 when extended. This table is a particularly functional design: sturdy, handsome and built for multiple uses

Designed by
Matthew Hilton

From an early age, Hilton was interested in painting, sculpture and architecture, and yet, the notion of being a "designer" didn't occur to him until it was suggested by a tutor at Portsmouth College of Art. The idea suited Hilton, who enrolled in the renowned Furniture and Design course at England's Kingston Polytechnic. After graduation he worked as an industrial designer and model maker until 1984 when he set up his own design studio/workshop. Two years later he launched a series of shelves at the Milan Furniture Fair, and in 1991 he designed the Balzac Armchair, which was first received with circumspect curiosity but then quickly embraced as a modern classic.

Since the Balzac, however, Hilton's work has taken on a less stylistic, more functional approach. He believes in creating furniture that people live with, and his inspiration often comes from long-established furniture forms. He now works to update and reinvent these forms, while keeping an eye on the future. In 2006, Hilton's Cross Extension Table won the annual Elle Decoration Design Award for Best in Furniture. The table showcases Hilton's advanced wood manufacturing techniques, as well as his sense of proportion, scale and functionality.

Matthew Hilton has learned from every piece he's designed, whether it was because it allowed him to work in a new material, with a new manufacturer or for stylistic reasons. "All of my pieces are loaded with meaning and memory and are very personal to me," says the British designer. Hilton, however, is quick to add that he doesn't believe in design movements, and instead prefers to think of the design process as part of the evolution of any object through history.
