TheSize wins Plus X Award for Best Product

July 2017

Neolith La Bohème, by Spanish sintered stone manufacturer TheSize, has won the prestigious Plus X Award for Best Product for the second year running.

La Bohème, from the Neolith Timber collection, was awarded for its innovation, high quality and startlingly realistic natural wood design.  Inspired by the stem of a Lebanese Cedar, the combination of knots and veins emulate the appearance and texture of natural timber.

To bring the design to life and as close to nature as possible, both in appearance and texture, the slab is created using Neolith Digital Design, and goes through an embossing process which gives the surface its 3D appearance.

Lightweight and versatile, La Bohème can be applied to any existing surface with ease including kitchen and bathroom worktops and showers, furniture, flooring and wall cladding. It’s Neolith’s first wood décor manufactured in 12mm thickness and was introduced to the market in 2016.

Mar Esteve, Marketing Director, TheSize, comments: “We’re extremely proud to win this prestigious award for the second year in a row. To be recognised for our innovation against tough competition is testament to the team’s hard work and continued effort in creating cutting-edge, design-led products.” 

Now in its 14th year, the Plus X Award is an innovation award for technology, sports and lifestyle.  An independent panel of judges from 26 industries selects award entries based on criteria such as extraordinary design, outstanding ergonomic and ecological features, as well as the quality of the material.
