French designer Mathieu Lehanneur celebrates the ocean through an unexpected material. “Liquid Marble” is a large piece of black marble sculpted to represent the movement of the ocean in a static yet realistic way.

“The piece doesn’t move, but the reflection of light on the polished marble makes it feel like a real sea. The idea is to bring a piece of the water to a place where there is none, to create a contemplative experience,” explains the designer.
