“Liquid Forms is a uniquely exciting contemporary design that really takes advantage of the plasticity of concrete,” says Jared Becker, Walker Zanger vice president of design and marketing. “Because of the numerous designs you can create with just one piece, it allows designers and architects to use the tile to create many exciting sculptural patterns. Aybars’s realization of the three-dimensionality possibilities allowed by Kaza’s unique manufacturing process was exemplary.”

The inaugural design competition was conducted in partnership with Architectural Digest. The participants were tasked with creating a concrete tile to complement the existing Kaza collection, and submissions were judged by a panel of six industry tastemakers.

Liquid Forms will be manufactured by Kaza Concrete exclusively for Walker Zanger’s Kaza collection, in three colorways, including a metallic. Asci will also travel to Budapest to tour the factory where Kaza tiles are manufactured.
