Liqui Contracts design and manufacture commercial furniture and lighting for architects and clients engaged in projects around the world. Liqui® Contracts forms part of Liqui® Group Ltd, which was initially started by furniture designer/maker Cameron Fry in 2007 with the aim of establishing a design practice with a multi-disciplined approach. We have become known for creating contract-grade products that have a domestic aesthetic – making it different from a lot of mass-produced commercial furniture. This means that our furniture and lighting products have both durability and a friendly appeal with their distinctive style.
Our core team of furniture designers and makers work together to develop commercial products that combine utilitarian purpose with a modern design aesthetic. For example, we can use CNC programming to machine cut components making production both efficient and more sustainable by cutting down on waste. These machined components can then be assembled and finished by hand to maintain the high quality our customers expect.
Our design studios deliberately overlook our main workshop which makes it easy to maintain a strong link between our process-led design approach and how we manufacture things. Our designers regularly roll up their sleeves to work on prototypes in the workshop. This means they can get to know the strengths and limitations of materials, figure out the best manufacturing methods and adjust their designs accordingly – leading to innovative ideas and more efficient means of production.
