Ada Armchair By Matthew Hilton for SCP

Ada Armchair By Matthew Hilton for SCP


An authoritative armchair design that balances comfort with a delicate hand-drawn aesthetic. With generous proportions to cradle the human frame, the chair is assured in its form, with curves and elongated lines that display a purposeful self-control.

"SCP have a very particular way of doing upholstery, it's not the modern way to do it. I’ve said this before, and it might be a bit of a cliché, but it’s like making a tailor-made suit, and they have that feel. It’s not the kind of absolute perfection we have got used to with modern technology production, which can be a bit soulless. Some things are nice when you can see a bit of the human interaction in them." Matthew Hilton.

Part of the 2023 SCP Upholstery Collection - A collection of 100% foam free sofas and armchairs, blending together the ornate with the restrained, the extravagant with the classical, in an exploration of the idea of soft power. A project that the SCP factory has been working on for over a decade.

Matthew Hilton

Born in 1957, 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 set up his own design studio/workshop in 1984.

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. Designing with the end user in mind, and whether that means a household of ten or one, he takes pleasure in finding the fluid, easily adaptable solution to fit today's domestic spaces.
