Orson desk, made in rich hardwood and cast iron, simply and quietly performs the task required, while remaining approachable and appealing to the senses. Three solid wood drawers provide ample storage for desk accessories, while three small compartments at the back of the desk provide an efficient and attractive cable management system. Accessories designed to complement the desk include two storage trays and a pencil holder which are available separately. Designed by Matthew Hilton for his eponymous brand, and manufactured by De La Espada craftsmen.
One of Britain’s most esteemed industrial designers and a Royal Designer for Industry, Matthew Hilton has over 30 years of experience in his field, designing for leading manufacturers. His furniture is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Geffrye Museum, London.
In 2007, Matthew established his eponymous brand as a place he could have complete creative control. Working in premium, robust materials including solid hardwood, cast iron, and brass, Hilton creates rigorously functional products that improve with the mark of age. Thinking like a sculptor, Matthew Hilton considers every view of a product equally, allowing for a sense of delight and surprise over the years as the user discovers new details and complexities.
De La Espada is the manufacturing partner for the Matthew Hilton brand.
“If you live with something, you might pick it up and look at the bottom. So the bottom of it is equally important. Every aspect is important because it is something that is going to stay in your life,” Matthew Hilton.
De La Espada is industrial design with a warm heart, where luxury is expressed through tactile materials and obsessive detailing. We focus on the key pieces of furniture for the home: a place to eat, a place to rest, and a place to sleep.
