Liquidesign create pieces that are in some way different to the norm . Or in the words of the immortal Sid Vicious, or Eddie Cochrane depending on your tastes and vintage, ‘..that’s sure fine looking baby, that’s something else’. The difference derives from the materials that are used, the combining of traditional with contemporary elements and the incorporation of graphic design into a 3-dimensional context.
They have an interesting range of products, presently made by small batch production and also create bespoke pieces on commission and graphic prints.
The Edge Coffee Table, shown above and presumably not named after the guitarist from U2, , was the first product that the son and father duo – Cameron and Martin Fry worked on together. Like all the Edge range, The Regency inspired coffee table is made from heavy-duty cardboard .
The Edge Console Table is never going to go unnoticed. Also made from light but sturdy cardboard which has been cut to leave the intricate, interior structure exposed on the thick edges while the flat surfaces are covered in a laminated veneer available in a variety of decorative prints.
One more from the Edge Collection. It is cardboard, again, which means it is probably just as well that it is lit by candle style energy-saving bulbs rather than real candles. It is big, one metre square, and makes a big statement in a big space and a huge statement in a smaller one. Love it.
Not part of the Edge collection and, therefore, not made out of cardboard, The Curve table is constructed from moulded fibre-board made from wood waste. Simple straight lines give way to distinctive, decorative legs – inspired by antique furniture. A gloss lacquer finish reflects the highly polished surfaces of their historical counterparts. Available in a range of colours as diverse as your imagination. After all the excitement of the Edge range we decided to show you the table in black. We think it is rather glamorous.
And finally, because it made us laugh, the Symbol Floor Light. A simple flat sign-like shape with a high gloss finish creating a crisp cut-out 3-dimensional form. The bulb hangs from the top of the “shade” in a modern take on the bare bulb in the attic look. There is also a table lamp version and both can be produced in virtually any colour to order.
