though simple in form, peter marigold‘s ‘bleed’ furniture collection expresses its complexity through a technique called localized ebonizing. the british designer has conceived a series of cedar wood cabinets whose steel hardware is stripped of its protective zinc coating through the application of acid. this process causes the metal and chemical substance to react with the tanins in the timber, thus resulting in a bleeding motif across the surface of the natural material; emphasizing and highlighting the lumber’s grain patterns.

I intended a double meaning in the use of the word ‘bleed’. on the one hand the steel is bleeding into the cedar, but I am also interested in the point at which a regular man made form takes on character, the point at which nature takes a foot hold in the things that we create to drag them back down into the mud.the man made becomes mortal again.’ – peter marigold
