For the Dekton Liquid Series, Cosentino commissioned pattern experts and designers, Anna Murray and Grace Winteringham of Patternity, to create a collection for Dekton that reflects the state-of-the-art material. Inspired by liquid, each of the individual colors are aesthetically innovative and as a collection, touch on the future of global trends. Colorways include:
- Liquid Sky: A swirling, marbled, cloud-like pattern that celebrates the scientific principles of fluid dynamics. Liquid Sky’s unique characteristics consist of a white base with flowing grey veins. The design explores the movement of gravity, the interplay of the elements, their matter, and pays homage to swirling energy and perpetual motion.
- Liquid Shell: The design of Liquid Shell is inspired by the moon, in union with the ocean’s tide. The pearlescent shade is a varying off-white with a rippling pattern of the landscape of the ocean floor.
- Liquid Embers: The colorway represents a meeting point between fire and liquid, a space that lies deep beneath the Earth’s surface. Reminiscent of magma, the cross of endings and new beginnings, Liquid Embers is a dark, carbon-like design that visualizes the alchemy of the elements.
