Panaz team up with David Fox for Gridz Collaboration

Second in a recent series of collaborations, Burnley’s Panaz has now teamed up with leading furniture designer David Fox, to create a stylish and eye-catching upholstery print – Gridz.

International award-winning Fox has flourished from his Yorkshire roots where he began designing bedroom furniture for a tubular steel manufacturer in 2002, to establish his own Leeds based product design consultancy.

Driven by a philosophy to provide only products that are truly contract quality, Panaz were inspired by Fox’s desire to design products that bring balance and refinement, yet are always fit for purpose.  

Fox explained “Panaz is a great British fabric manufacturer with more than 30 years’ experience.  They understand furniture and how fabrics are used by the end user.  It was refreshing in this instance to not only design the furniture but consider the skin that surrounds it and how these can harmonise and enhance each other”.

Tony Attard, founder and CEO of Panaz commented “Working with David has been another great addition to our portfolio. In Gridz he has created a fabulously contemporary design that will appeal across our broad spectrum of customers.  Combined with our high performing Highland fabric, Gridz is suitable for use in any demanding contract environment”.
