Tile company opens design and materials innovation hub at Liverpool Waters
A pioneering ceramic tile company has opened a 9,000 sq ft showroom at King Edward Triangle, within Liverpool Waters.
Retailer, All The Shapes Tile & Co, is basing its eco-friendly design and materials innovation hub for architects and interior designers at the waterfront site.
The aim is for it to be at the forefront of material innovation and the sustainable design movement and offer an exciting architecture and design destination for the North West region.
Founder James Lambert’s vision was to create a ‘future conscious’ space that inspires creativity and sustainability. It is aimed at architects, interior designers, contractors, property developers, and the general public.
The business, which has joined the community of businesses now based at King Edward Triangle, plans to host inspiring talks and workshops that will educate people and help customers to make more informed choices from an ecological and sustainable point of view.
The Liverpool business imports and supplies bespoke indoor and outdoor porcelain and ceramic tiles, and other surface collections, from around the world.
It also provides a unique resource centre to find materials, products and finishes for design projects, commercial properties and homes. Whether it’s the best of ceramic or porcelain tile collections, green environments, wallpapers, furniture, lighting, bathrooms, bedroom or kitchen solutions, All The Shapes says it can source it all, under one roof.
Managing director, James Lambert, said: “We want to enrich the debate and foster a legacy surrounding sustainability in the design industry. Achieving this requires makers and manufacturers that are willing to take a considered approach to sustainability and at All The Shapes we make it our mission to find them for you.
“Through our online resources and unique showroom, we aim to inspire creativity whilst offering the opportunity for aspirational material suppliers to connect on their projects.”
He added: “Our commitment to every project is the same – to provide the best product and service solutions to our many and varied clients, from commercial and residential developers to architects and interior designers, contractors and sub-contractors, and private clients.”
King Edward Triangle, a mixed-use commercial, retail and residential neighbourhood which provides a pivotal link between Liverpool Waters, Liverpool’s central business district and the city centre, has now reached 100% occupancy.
Liza Marco, asset manager at Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters, said: “All The Shapes Tile & Co has a very unique offer and is a fantastic asset for Liverpool, attracting designers and architects to our world famous and historic northern docks.”
