Exhibitors will include TheSize with its powerful Neolith brand. In 2019 Neolith announced four new colours for its 2019 catalogue: New York - New York, Mar Del Plata, Mont Blanc, and Sofia Cuprum. The new colours are complemented by an expanded range of Neolith products including four new additions to both the 3mm and 20mm ranges.
Neolith’s New York - New York has a visually-appealing surface influenced by the revival of interest in using concrete for interior applications, particularly worktops. With distinctive grey tones it offers an on-trend, urban style suitable for all surfacing applications. Incorporating a full body edge it’s highly realistic; a special surface which blends matt and shine particles to create a pleasing visual effect.
New York - New York is offered in Silk finish in 3mm, 6mm, 12mm and 20mm thicknesses and available in 3,200 by 1,600mm and 3,200 by 1,500mm formats.
Mar Del Plata was inspired by the exotic Dark Pearl granite, a Brazilian stone from TheSize’s Granith collection. This stylish, rippled slab incorporates wavy white quartz stripes on a grey backdrop. With a slated stone relief, the surface offers a mesmerizingly aqueous fluidity akin to flowing water evoking the movement of a mighty South American river. The whiter and lighter grey striations are produced with a special technique which gives texture to the veining. Flecks of shine particle throughout the stone also create a beautiful nacre effect which mirrors the quartz veins found in the original granite.
Mar Del Plata is offered in a special Slate finish in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses and available in 3,200 by 1,600mm and 3,200 by 1,500mm formats. Neolith Mar Del Plata is ideal for worktop (12mm), flooring and cladding applications (6mm).
Mont Blanc pays homage to white quartzite. Its neutral tone combines a creamy white background with subtle veining in deep black and ochre hues. Using a special technique, Neolith was able to create an inward relief exactly where the veins are, delivering an original texture which is pleasing to the touch and evokes the soaring beauty of the alpine landscape. Mont Blanc is offered in a Silk finish in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses and available in 3,200 by 1,600mm and 3,200 by 1,500mm formats. Neolith Mont Blanc is ideal for worktop (12mm), flooring and cladding applications (6mm).
Sofia Cuprum, a dark and sober surface, represents the evolution of Neolith’s Steel Collection. The semi-polished finish on these stones creates an irregular, burnished effect which gives the surface a more worn-in touch and feel.
Sofia Cuprum is offered in Shine Silk finish in 6mm, 12mm and 20mm thicknesses and available in 3,200 by 1,600mm and 3,200 by 1,500mm formats. Neolith Sofia Cuprum is ideal for worktop (12mm & 20mm), flooring and cladding applications (6mm). More at: www.neolith.com
