Born in London in 1974, Peter Marigold earned his B.A. in Fine Art and Sculpture from Central St. Martins in London in 1997, and his M.A. in Design Products, studying under Ron Arad, at the Royal College of Art in 2006. Early on, he worked in sculpture and theatrical and event scenography (props, costumes, sets, etc.), ultimately focusing primarily on furniture design. An avid collector, much of Marigold’s work is concerned with storage and object display, and he often combines natural and man-made materials within simple, austere structures.
Marigold’s clients include Paul Smith, Fendi, Sony, Gallery Libby Sellers, and Li Edelkoort, among others. His work has been exhibited at New York’s MoMA, Design Miami, Design Museum Holon, Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Design Museum in London. In June 2009, he was awarded the Designer of the Future Award by Design Miami.
