Designer Richard Frinier has received the platinum award in the ADEX awards competition, which recognises design and product innovation, for his Seaside Collection of Sunbrella fabrics. Frinier is internationally acclaimed for product design, creative visualisation and direction. The Seaside Collection is named for the iconic coastal destinations.

The Seaside Collection highlights romantic coastal destinations and locales around the world that served as inspiration for the distinctively beautiful and exceptionally executed performance textiles.

“As a native Southern Californian, I have lived in and around a coastal region my entire life and am naturally drawn to seaside destinations and lifestyles. There is an inherent allure to seaside cities and resort villages that beckons us to come closer and then compels us to linger, leaving a lasting mark on our memories and in our hearts long after we have returned home,” Frinier said.

The Seaside Collection comprises two base cloths - Stonebrook and Bayshore; two stripes - Coastview and Fairharbor; and, three patterns - Palma, Freeport and Southpoint.

Stonebrook is a lightweight, textured plain weave made from ratiné yarns with the appearance of beach sand. Bayshore is a box weave construction woven on a common warp allowing for a beautiful range of coastal hues.

Coastview is woven using the Stonebrook construction, illustrating a classic and spirited espadrille stripe. Fairharbor is a cabana stripe in sun-washed and soft, pastel colours which complements the Bayshore construction.

Palma is a banana leaf pattern on a jacquard construction inspired by the botanical gardens and landscapes of seaside retreats. Freeport is a woven jacquard with an oversized, open basketweave pattern enhanced by a slightly distressed and hand-woven appearance. Southpoint, with its softly distressed jacquard diamond pattern, evokes imagery of more nostalgic and classic seaside resort architecture in a stylised reference to decorative tiles. (SV)
