The Art of Water
Widely heralded as the industry’s benchmark for design, construction, and engineering practices, David Tisherman has achieved global recognition for the standards he sets in the watershaping industry. Based in Manhattan Beach, California, with a satellite office in Cherry Hill, New Jersey (Liquid Design, LLC), Tisherman creates structurally correct swimming pools and spas that rise to the level of fine sculpture and environmental art.
Tisherman personally supervises all construction down to the finest details. An unrelenting perfectionist, he makes no compromises in quality or artistry, basing his work on creativity that encompasses his extensive educational background and his uncanny eye for color, scale, proportion, and detail. Each project is painstakingly engineered to meet the highest possible standards for hydraulic and structural integrity.
Tisherman uses the reflective quality of water and the beauty and texture of materials to enhance an overall setting. Rather than visually “forcing the pool” into a setting, his work elegantly enhances the architecture and environment in a dignified, and often, almost lyrical tone and quality.
The Robb Report called him the “Most influential designer and builder of the past two decades,” and his work has appeared on the covers of Architectural Digest, The Robb Report, Dream Houses, and Luxury Pools. Additionally, Tisherman recently won a 2013 Pinnacle Awards, his fifth consecutive. In fact, Tisherman is the only builder to win this award every year since its inception.

David Tisherman’s background is not like most others in the pool industry. He attended California State University and Harvard Graduate School of Design. He has degrees in 3-dimensional design and history and is an industrial designer by vocation. He now passes his building and design expertise on to landscape architects by teaching at U.C.L.A.’s School of Landscape Architecture. Known as the ‘Frank Lloyd Wright of the Industry,’ Tisherman’s work speaks for itself.
