The Profile chair is a stackable solid oak chair with an upholstered seat. It is a well-proportioned, subtle design, with a recessed back detail that makes it extremely comfortable to sit on. The chair’s angular form is balanced by the softness of the upholstered seat pad. The chair is light in terms of weight and appearance. It is available in natural oak with a chocolate brown leather seat pad, or in wenge stained oak with a black leather seat pad.

Matthew Hilton doesn't believe in design movements, and he really doesn't like the concept of design as a fashion. Rather, he thinks the design process is part of the evolution of any object through history.
Born in 1957, 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 set up his own design studio/workshop in 1984. SCP was the first manufacturer to produce Hilton’s work, launching Hilton’s Bow shelves at Milan Furniture Fair in 1986. Nineteen years on, SCP and Matthew Hilton continue to collaborate, producing seminal furniture such as the Balzac armchair, Orford sofa and Flipper coffee table to name but a few. While continuing his relationship with SCP, Hilton has gone on to work with many well respected international manufacturers including CASE, Driade, Disform, Sawaya and Moroni, XO, Montis, Perobell,Authentics, Montina, Livit and Ycami. 2007 saw the launch of Matthew Hilton’s own brand of furniture and he is launching new designs with both CASE and SCP in 2008.
2008 also saw Matthew Hilton being named the British Designer of the year by Elle Decoration.
