Patternity and Cosentino Make Waves With Their Ocean-Inspired Liquid Collaboration
Pattern-design agency Patternity marked its 10th anniversary last year while forging a partnership with Cosentino. For Liquid, co-founders Anna Murray and Grace Winteringham explore water as a rapidly depleting resource, rendered in Dekton, the company’s proprietary compressed quartz, glass, and porcelain composite. Varieties include gray-marbled Liquid Sky and Liquid Shell, a pearlescent simulation of the rippling ocean floor. The designers swirled oil-based inks in water before photographing and printing the high-resolution images onto the surfacing. Appropriately enough, the collaboration debuted just beyond the beach, at Design Miami, and its manufacture is sympathetically produced with reduced water.
