TheSize, manufacturer of sintered stone brand Neolith, expanded its range of premium surfaces with four new color introductions for 2018. Following rigorous market research and a customer survey of prototypes, the new décors are in response to trends for high-end commercial and residential architectural surfacing design.
Neolith Retrostone is based on Terrazzo, a traditional manufacturing solution to help use up scraps of marble and granite by setting it in concrete producing a kaleidoscopic effect. Characterized by bold patterning and cosmopolitan sophistication, Terrazzo has resurged in popularity largely thanks to its eco-friendly and low-maintenance qualities. Part of the Neolith Fusion collection, Retrostone is offered in Silk finish in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses and available in 3,200mm x 1,600mm and 3,200 x 1,500mm formats.
Neolith Mirage captures the understated grandeur of Europe’s medieval churches and public buildings, constructed from richly textured sandstone. Hyper-realism is a feature that designers are looking for, especially with its ability to capture the authenticity of natural stone. Mirage, as the name suggests, is so realistic, it tricks the eye. Part of the Neolith Fusion collection, Mirage is offered in Silk finish in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses and available in 3,200mm x 1,600mm and 3,200 x 1,500mm formats.
Neolith Krater is a dark brown, almost black, design characterized by a beautifully swirling, deep grey grain, captured using the latest technology to create an organic, continuous pattern, true to the look of the natural stone. The depth and contrast offered by darker stones, especially igneous rocks, has gradually increased in popularity amongst interior designers looking to add a bold and striking focal points within a room, whether for a commercial, retail or residential setting. Part of the Neolith Fusion collection, Krater is offered in Silk and Riverwashed finishes in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses and available in 3,200mm x 1,600mm and 3,200 x 1,500mm formats.
Neolith Calatorao is a distinctive, fine-grained limestone which has been hewn from the world-famous quarries of Zaragoza, Spain, for over 2000 years. Neolith has faithfully captured Calatarao’s lustrous golden veining and intensely dark grey color which characterizes the stone. Part of the Neolith Classtone collection, Calatorao is offered in Silk finish in 6mm, 12mm and 20mm thicknesses and available in 3,200mm x 1,600mm and 3,200 x 1,500mm formats.
These four color additions are complemented by an expanded range of Neolith products, including: Two new colors in the NanoTech Polished finish – pale-grey Luna and light-brown Bombón, and thirteen new 20mm thick slabs, bringing the full range to eighteen.
With the new introductions, Neolith now offers over 56 different designs across its seven collections—in multiple finishes and thicknesses—providing specifiers with a broader range of design possibilities.
