Neolith: Good as Gold

Continuing its 2017 winning streak, Neolith Nero Marquina by TheSize has received its fourth award. Following its success with a Red Dot, Interzum and Muuuz award, Nero Marquina now has a Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Award 2017 to add to its growing list of accolades. The surface achieved a gold standard in the Innovation in Materials category.

Rewarding the very best talent in the industry, the Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards 2017 are judged by experienced and highly respected industry figures. Each submission is subject to a rigorous set of criteria to single out exceptionally original and creative products and design. The individuality and singularity of Nero Marquina ensured it stood out in this hotly contested category.

Nero Marquina is a crowning achievement for TheSize from a technical perspective. Influenced by Spanish marble, the décor successfully achieves a brilliant white veining on a jet black background. Achieving the aesthetic was a challenge since maintaining a bright white veining that does not dull on a pure black backdrop during the production process meant TheSize had to enter a new technical avenue. Nero Marquina’s Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Award is testimony to TheSize’s achievement and Neolith’s innovative Digital Design (NDD) decoration technique.

Shaun Hopkinson, UK Manager, Neolith® by TheSize

Commenting on the achievement, Shaun Hopkinson, Neolith’s UK Sales Manager said: “This award, alongside three previous wins for Nero Marquina, is testament to the extremely high quality and detailing of the surface. In particular these accolades highlight the levels care and skill which went into the research and development of the final design. Nero Marquina is becoming a popular choice for both kitchen and bathroom application and we feel the appetite for this colour is only set to increase in 2018.” 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.

The decor can also be book-matched to create mirror-like designs. The awards were presented to the winners at a ceremony on the 22nd November 2017 at The Brewery, London.     Headquartered in Castellón, Spain, TheSize was founded in 2009 with the objective of creating a new material category suitable for exterior and interior construction: kitchen and bath countertops, furnishings, flooring and facades. In 2011, the Neolith® brand was launched as high-end compact surface with revolutionary physical and technical features.

A term meaning “new stone,” Neolith® combines the best natural raw materials with state-of-the-art technology to create a high-tech slab. Neolith’s® product is created through the company’s proprietary sinterization technology, exposing minerals and other raw materials to extremely high pressure and temperature (over 1200 degrees Celsius/2200 degrees Fahrenheit), resembling the way natural stone forms over thousands of years, in just hours. The process gives the product outstanding physical and mechanical properties in terms of compaction, resistance and durability. The various style collections are a result of Neolith’s® innovative Digital Design (NDD) decoration technique. This system has revolutionized Neolith® patterns and is pushing the boundaries of what colours and textures are possible from compact surfaces.
