Peter Marigold

Peter Marigold’s designs champion and make obvious the handmade.

He expresses a clear  frustration with the mass-consumer nature of contemporary society which puts the job of making firmly in someone else’s hands, a service to purchase, not an activity in which to partake. Largely a furniture maker, each of his works is wrought with a sense of immediacy – his intention to make physical his ideas as quickly as feasible from materials close to hand and quick to transform - his furniture is often made of fallen wood sourced from his local park. His works are neither over-engineered nor highly finished, further drawing attention to its handmade-ness.

A graduate of the Design Products course at the Royal College of Art, Peter Marigold now teaches Furniture and Product Design at The Cass.
