UK designer peter marigold shows some of his most recent works at two different shows in celebration of london design week 2010. exhibiting at the brompton design district as a part of a collective show entitled, ‘objects with a void‘ is a series of clay vessels which range in dimension from thimble-size to massive wellington boots. the malleable material has been forced into a gradually enlarged cavity in wood, resulting in the top of the vessels having a texture of extruded wood. other artists showing at the exhibition are max lamb, hiroko shiratori, and study o portable.

at the second installment of phillips de pury‘s pop-up program in saatchi gallery, projectory‘, marigold shows a wooden chess set table. each individual piece has been cut from a single tree branch then minimally chiseled away to provide distinguishable characteristics. ‘projectory’, which aims to show important movements in contemporary design from both studio and industrial perspectives, features new projects from nendo, richard hutton, and oskar zieta.
