Panaz & Patternistas Collaboration Awarded Mixology Surfaces Product of the Year

A distinctive, vibrant and exciting upholstery, the result of the collaboration “Patternistas for Panaz”, has won the Mixology 18 Surface of the Year Award hosted in London on the 21st June.  Representatives from Lancashire based textile designers, Panaz, and Cardiff design duo, Suzanne and Chris Carpenter, better known as “Patternistas”, accepted the award as the upholstery was praised for its vivid use of colour and warm, vibrant and retro inspired pattern.

Chris & Suzanne have quickly become amongst the most sought after collaborators in UK since forming Patternistas in 2016, working with some of the biggest names in British manufacturing. Their signature style of vibrant colours paired with animal and plantlife motifs make a bold statement in any interior scheme. In “Patternistas for Panaz”, three original designs sure to catch the eye, were created for print on our Panaz basecloths; Pollen, Chorus & Dewdrop, as well as softer, child-focused designs in “Patternistas for Children”.

The Mixology Awards are an annual ceremony hosted by Mix Interiors Magazine, to recognising the market leaders and key influencers of commercial interior design. This year’s event took place in London’s Old Billingsgate Market and was attended by a record number of over 1,100 architects, designers and manufacturers.
