TheSize, manufacturer of sintered compact surface brand Neolith, expands its range of premium surfaces with revolutionary product launches. This year, Neolith’s introductions go well beyond just pattern design, offering new thicknesses, formats and finishes. These imaginative introductions will be revealed at the 2017 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), in Orlando, Florida, on 10 January to 12 January.
Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the materials and be able to appreciate the elaborate details in each manufactured design. Inspired by past and present, the new décors are a unification of architectural influences, natural marbles from around the world and collaborative workings of in-house designers at TheSize.
Man made natural décore
- Blanco Carrara (Classtone Collection): Inspired by real Carrara marbles from Italy, Blanco Carrara is the result of a meticulous selection process. TheSize in-house designers collated dozens of natural Carrara marbles found in Italy and from each one, selected the exact quality and characteristic to be replicated in the Neolith slab. With this custom approach, the final product is a truly unique entity, comprising natural aesthetic elements exclusive to TheSize. To realistically portray the likeness of natural marbles and their unpredictability, two versions of Blanco Carrara have been created – one a more subtle portrayal of the veining and the other, a prominent, high-contrast version. Blanco Carrara is available in two thicknesses, 6mm and 12mm, Polished finish. Blanco Carrara is especially suited for floors, walls, bathroom and kitchen worktops and furniture
- Nero Marquina (Classtone Collection): Neolith’s answer to a timeless monochromatic trend that transcends interior design, fashion and architecture, this décor is a vital part of these introductions. Inspired by marble from Spain, Nero Marquina is a testament to the technical expertise present at TheSize. To achieve bright white veining on a pure black backdrop is a task challenging enough on paper, but for a slab, a new technical avenue is entered. For this, TheSize developed an exclusive technique to achieve the stark contrast and distinct fine lines. Available in Polished and Silk finishes and in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses, Nero Marquina is ideal for floors, walls, bathroom and kitchen worktops, as well as furniture
- Concrete Taupe (Fusion Collection): Following suit from one of the most popular décors from the 2015 Neolith launches, Concrete Taupe differentiates itself from its predecessor Beton with an all over brown wash of color and warmer tone. Appealing to industrial design trends, the slab tells a story of time with a well-loved finish. The décor suggests that a natural rusting has occurred but with the addition of micro flakes to add the slightest sparkle, TheSize updated, modernized and created another facet to the slab. Available in 6mm and 12mm in Silk finish, Concrete Taupe is a neutral décor ideal for a multitude of applications ranging from interior, exterior cladding and furniture
- Aspen Grey (Fusion Collection): Following the launch of its first full body décor, Pierre Bleue, TheSize launches 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. Aligned 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 in soft touch Silk, 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
Stirring up the industry
Forever innovating and disrupting the industry, 2017 will see TheSize become the first manufacturer to produce a 20mm thickness with its proprietary sintering technology. It is cementing TheSize as a market leader and the only player in the game to offer such a wide range of possibilities; from 3mm to 20mm, and exterior cladding to worktops and furniture cladding. The 20mm thickness will be available with a select few décors initially; Basalt Black Satin; Arctic White Silk; Cement Satin; Beton Silk; and Pierre Bleue Silk.
Alongside this new thickness, the 3mm slab is now available in the award winning Calacatta; Estatuario; Pulpis; Strata Argentum; Calacatta Gold; Pierre Bleue; Beton; and Iron Frost. With these additions to the 3mm thickness production line, customers can now specify favorite décors from the Neolith range for furniture cladding or interior walls, further breaking down boundaries of interior design at TheSize.
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.
