Peter Marigold (1974), a graduate from the Royal College of Art, first studied sculpture and worked in theatre design before doing an MA in Design Products at Royal College of Art. Marigold has developed a series of furniture forms adapted to the nomadic tendencies of contemporary living that occupy a territory somewhere between product, furniture and architectural intervention. Beneath their apparent simplicity - an aesthetic of improvisation and celebration of raw materials and the utilitarian - Marigold's designs are rigorously calibrated and based on geometric principles.
The Split Boxes series is typical of Marigold's approach, Based on the principle that the inverted angles of any log cut lengthwise into four sections, will always produce angles making up a complete 360 the series celebrates irregularity within the apparently regular and generates endless variations. Marigold received the Design Miami/Art Basel Designer of the Future award in 2009 and has exhibited internationally including Moss Gallery NYC, Perimeter Art and Design Paris, Tools Galerie Paris, and Gallery Libby Sellers as well as at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Design Museum London and the MoMA, New York.
