Neolith, a sintered compact surface brand manufactured by TheSize, expands its Fusion collection with three new low-maintenance, fashion-forward alternatives to natural stone – Zaha Stone, Concrete Taupe and Aspen Grey. Each was highlighted in booth W137 at the 2017 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Orlando, Florida, in January.
Zaha Stone (Fusion Collection)
TheSize takes you on a journey to Iran with Neolith Zaha Stone – a contemporary twist on Iranian Grey Stone. Zaha Stone, inspired by renowned architect Zaha Hadid, incorporates a richer, industrial grey tone with white veins etched onto the backdrop in contradicting directions.
Available in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses, and in a Silk finish, the Persian-inspired stone is the statement piece of these new introductions.
"Zaha Hadid was an extraordinarily talented architect that has forever changed the landscape of architecture," said TheSize Surfaces marketing manager Mar Esteve.
"It’s only fitting that our boldest surfacing model for 2017 pays tribute to the legacy that Hadid left behind."
Concrete Taupe (Fusion Collection)
Following the popularity of Beton, one of Neolith’s most admired concrete décors, the new Concrete Taupe differentiates itself with with a warmer toned, brown-wash slab that tells a story of time through a well-loved finish. Building on the trend of industrial-inspired design, the décor suggests that a natural rusting has occurred, yet offers the same durable properties essential to Neolith. The addition of micro-flakes also modernizes the design with just a hint of sparkle.
Available in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses, and in a Silk finish, Concrete Taupe is a neutral décor ideal for a multitude of applications ranging from interior uses, exterior cladding and furniture.
Aspen Grey (Fusion Collection)
Following the launch of its first full body décor, Pierre Bleue, TheSize introduces yet another full body – a dark grey matte inspired by natural Aspen stone. With countless micro-elements scattered throughout, the slab offers movement with a sense of ornateness and character. Created with the same Neolith Digital Design (NDD) technology used to develop the Pierre Bleue décor, Aspen Grey’s color is present through the entirety of the slab.
Available in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses, and in soft touch Silk finish, it presents itself as the ideal slab for creating the illusion of texture in interior and exterior cladding, flooring, kitchen and bathroom worktops, and furniture applications.
Neolith is 100% natural, composed of raw materials and simulated the way natural stone is created over thousands of years in just a few short hours. Neolith slabs have a near-zero porosity, making them hygienic, stain resistant, easy to clean and impervious to chemicals. The product is also wear, scratch, heat-resistant and its mineral-based colors do not fade from UV-ray exposure. Each Neolith model is lightweight and easy to install, making the product suitable for virtually every indoor and outdoor surface, residential or commercial.
With the new introductions, Neolith now offers over 56 different designs across its seven collections that are available in multiple finishes and thicknesses providing specifiers with a broader range of design possibilities.
Neolith products are available in the US and worldwide through a large network of distributors.
