Milton Priest is an artisanal design and manufacturing studio located in northern France that crafts handmade furniture and objets d’art, utilising both traditional and contemporary processes. The work is produced in low quantities with meticulous attention to detail. This allows it to be personalised to a client’s individual requirements.
The furniture they create has its origins in utilitarian, industrial design; admired for its aesthetic integrity born out of absolute necessity. The form of the furniture is less concerned with visual harmony and formal balance, placing instead an emphasis on the relationship to everyday objects and environmental situations. The pieces are personified by the subjects they reference, imbuing them with honesty and, at times, humour – one piece (the pink bicycle-cum-stool giving Dr. Seuss a run for his money) is called The Twonky!
