Directors at design group Four IV are insisting that founding member and director of graphics Tony Blurton will continue in his role, despite industry rumours to the contrary.
Initially, directors at the consultancy said Blurton had “amicably” departed from the group within the past month.
Their statement has since been modified to say Blurton is on short-term sick leave and still very much with the company.
“We expect him back shortly,” says director of interiors Gregor Jackson.
Blurton, speaking from his home, also describes his absence as temporary: “I am expecting to go back. I am definitely still on board at Four IV,” he says.
