The Oscar Ottoman by Matthew Hilton

Design Classic – Influential and important design

Oscar Ottoman

The Oscar Ottoman is created in the United Kingdom from environmentally friendly materials. The Oscar collection is huge in size but light in appearance, striking a nice mix between contemporary and heritage. It’s constructed with a European wooden frame, jute webbing, and hessian straps, and then covered with a blend of natural fibres, animal hair, and wool. The feet are composed of walnut dyed beech that has been turned. Hilton has developed a sculpture that is both reserved and humble by juxtaposing lengthy straight lines with delicate natural curves.
