At Clerkenwell Design Week, Panaz young designer Simon Attard will launch his debut collection Underground, on an industry first, environmentally responsible recycled contract fabric, using this unique opportunity to raise awareness of environmental issues facing the planet today.
“Simon’s designs are the perfect print collection to launch our ground breaking new recycled contract fabric. They are current and relevant, reflecting Panaz’s responsibility to develop environmentally friendly materials and improve sustainability through our business processes. This product is low carbon and eco-friendly and it is only a short matter of time before we develop this through our other collections.” – Tony Attard, Panaz CEO.
The Underground collection takes inspiration from graffiti and the street art of 1970’s and 80’s New York, right through to that seen on our city streets today. Fusing this design with the latest flame retardant, recycled fabric innovation from Panaz, they have created an industry first, truly sustainable and environmentally responsible product, both in message and in substance.
The designs are current, cool and contemporary, and the product they are combined into is intrinsically stylish with great environmental credentials.
Named Underground, this collection reflects designs ordinarily associated with counter culture and misguidance, and in name, subtly references the increasingly disposable society and waste issues that we deal with every day, on our streets, underground in landfill, and in our oceans.
Underground consists of 3 designs in 5 colourways – Downtown and Wall showcase scale and street graphics and combine monochrome with earthly neutrals and a neon pop; while Rhythm is motif based and improvised, making these innovative designs perfect for the Workspace sector.
