There is poetry in a material that finds its form as it changes phases. When he sees a concrete surface, he always imagines it’s liquid state, it’s movement as it is poured. The concept he explored for this design was the expression of flow and movement in a solid form.
And perhaps the best examples of this phenomena manifests itself in the mastery of Baroque sculptors – chiseled into marble. The ephemeral qualities of capturing movement in stone in Bernini’s masterpieces has been an inspiration for him. And how does the idea of capturing movement translate itself into tilling?
Tilling by nature is about repetition. And repetition can be a powerful design tool. Imagine the music of Steve Reich or Philip Glass. Creating a single tile design that can generate multiple patterns was very important to the ehtos of this idea. Aqua 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.
