GLOBAL APPEAL
From interiors to products, one designer explains his reach

Simple thumbnail sketches, elicited in black ballpoint pen, are how every one
of Liqui Group's products are first conceived. "I was taught to do it this way
at university, as I'm a bit of a perfectionist and found myself rubbing stuff
out when I did it in pencil, which didn't allow for happy mistakes," explains
Cameron Fry, founder and creative director of the sustainable furniture,
lighting, and interior design studio with offices in London and Brighton,
England, as well as Los Angeles.
Reared in a small town on the south coast of England, Fry knew which career
path he wanted to take early on. His father was an artist and graphic designer, and
Fry, who is "massively dyslexic," as he puts it, did especially well in art and design
classes. After focusing on jewelry in the University of Brighton's 3D design and
craft program, a frustrating endeavor that ultimately steered him toward furniture,

he established Liqui Group in 2007, growing it into a multidisciplinary
practice that also encompasses a branding arm, Crate47. The firms's recent
West Coast foray now allows for U.S. manufacturing capabilities.
Fry is drawn to natural, tactile materials, fashioning them into the likes
of the walnut-finished Cyril sideboard, part of a new midcentury-informed
range of office furniture, or the Memphis Group-inspired Georgie collection
of oak tables. Next up: a steel chair with CNC-cut foam cushions, Liqui
Group's first-ever outdoor piece.
But much of Fry's time these days is devoted to commercial interiors,
particularly for global coffee shops, including multiple outlets of Saudi
Arabia café and roastery Brew92 and Kaafi in The Hague, Netherlands.
Here, one of the standouts is Liqui Group's wide-armed Hove Club Chair.
"Designing a product feels like designing a personality. It's almost like
creating a character whereas an interior is more about designing an
experience," says Fry. "They both aim to evoke an emotional response from
anyone looking at them." hd

Along with interiors, which include large pieces by French
contemporary artist Zepha, Liqui Group created furniture and lighting
for Brew92's Imam University outpost in Riyadh, its third for the brand
