Peter Marigold's practice as a furniture designer is informed by his varied background in sculpture, theatrical set building and product design. Unbound by tradition, Marigold experiments with materials and form to create considered yet playful objects, ranging from stools made with felted wool to galvanized steel shelving. He works in a broad way, operating his studio as a small-scale manufactory, as well as working with larger producers, galleries and retailers. His practice embraces both the hand-made and mass-produced object, and explores how their design processes intersect. In 2009 Marigold was awarded a 'Designer of the Future' award by Design Miami, and has since gone onto exhibit his work internationally.
