The designer, Aybars Asci, president and founder of Efficiency Lab for Architecture, is an advocate of research driven design that combines conceptual clarity with analytical processes such as the use of algorithmic tools and building performance modeling.
’Liquid Forms’ is the winner of the Walker Zanger KAZA Concrete Tile Design Competition in partnership with Architectural Digest. Capturing the essence of concrete as a liquid stone, the design was inspired by the mastery of Baroque sculptors and the idea of expressing flow in a solid form. Creating a single tile design that can generate multiple patterns was very important to the ethos of this idea. Liquid Forms tile is aesthetically versatile. All the different patterns it generates have unique visual qualities that will give architects and interior designers a rich palette to work with.
