Award-winning furniture and interior designer Bud Panesar comes from a long lineage of furniture designers. After completing his Masters in Engineering and working in the Internet Industry, in 2003, Bud decided to rekindle some of the creativity from his youth and formed his own furniture design and manufacturing company, with clients that included Uhuru Kenyatta (President of Kenya), Sir Richard Branson (Founder of the Virgin Group) and Paul Allen (co-founder of Microsoft). Bud believes that designs need to be optimised, with a balance between form and function, and between art and engineering. His new business vision is to focus more on design while outsourcing manufacturing to third parties.
