The 1963 in London born designer Michael Marriot initially studied furniture design at the London College of Furniture and then on the Royal College of Art. After his graduation in 1993 he founded his own design studio and began to design and produce furniture and household objects for the industrial production.
He always searches new, interesting possibilities of designing affordable design artefacts. Also daily objects such as wig nuts or plastic cleaning buckets and simple materials such as plywood are continuously displayed in his works.
As a product designer he examines the influence of daily objects and the way they are built. His aim is to design “really modern items” by “an honest and appropriate usage of materials, processes and functions”.
Many of his works are also exposed in national as well as international museums such as the Geffrye Museum or the Camden Arts Centre in London.
