Foxy fabrics. Debut textile designs by David Fox.
Award winning furniture designer David Fox gives us the inside story on his venture from furniture to fabrics which has brought into being our new designer jacquards Adrenalin and Nuna. "I've designed everything that goes on the inside, so it was a logical progressionn to create the skin that surrounds the object", explains David. In working with textiles, he was freed from the technical constraints of how to assemble 3D furniture shapes and given artistic licence to experiment with a two dimensional textile surface. So how did he find it? "The challenge with fabrics is to understand how computer designs will translate on to cloth through weave construction and colour," says David. "Colour theory plays a much larger role to ensure the palette and textures are correct. I'm very happy with the result."
The result is stunningly seductive textile fluidity. Adrenalin forms a convergence of graceful, flowing lines and an adrenalin rush which breathes life into the soul of the fabric. "In its more muted colourways I see it working perfectly with natural wood finishes on hospitality orientated furniture," says David, "while in combination with other Camira ranges it will add an air of channeled energy to more corporate interiors." Inspiration for the angular design of Nuna is taken from "Nunataks", which are the jagged ridges of mountain peaks rising above dramatic ice fields and silhouetting into the distance. Both ranges have a complementary solid plain fabric for flexibility of interior scheme planning.
