Following rigorous market research and live-surveying among architects, designers, and specifiers at several special events held in tandem with some of Europe’s most elite design trade shows, the new décors are a direct response to today’s hyper-realistic surface design trends seen in high-end residential and commercial architecture. Visitors were invited to select their favorites from eight prototype designs, with the top four choices subsequently selected for the 2019 collection.
The new colors are complemented by an expanded range of Neolith products, including four new additions to both the 3mm and 20mm range thicknesses. Furthermore, the slabs have been created utilizing a new eco-friendly production process called HYDRO Neolith Digital Design 2.0 (HYDRO-NDD 2.0), a water-based decoration technique which helps reduce contaminating emissions.
Influenced by The Big Apple and the city’s infectious energy, iconic avenues and majestic skyscrapers, New York-New York is the latest addition to the Neolith Fusion collection. A visually appealing surface, its distinctive grey tones incorporate a highly realistic, full body edge that seamlessly blend matte and shine particles to create a beautiful, on-trend and urban style effect. Paying homage to the classics, the surface responds to the revival of interest in concrete to create sleek and modern industrial applications throughout the home.
New York-New York is offered in Silk finish in 3mm, 6mm, 12mm and 20mm thicknesses and available in 3,200mm x 1,600mm and 3,200 x 1,500mm slab formats. It is ideal for countertops (12mm & 20mm), flooring and interior wall cladding (3mm & 6mm).
Characterized by its striking wavy, iridescent quartz banding against a bold grey backdrop, Neolith’s new Mar del Plata décor takes inspiration from the exotic Dark Pearl granite, a Brazilian stone from TheSize’s Granith® collection. The white and lighter grey striations create a beautiful ripple effect, one that resembles fluidity akin to flowing water inspired by a mighty South American river. Crafted using a special technique, the slab showcases the unique texture to the veining that creates a one-of-a-kind look and feel to the surface. Flecks of shine particles throughout the stone also create a beautiful nacre effect.
Part of the Neolith Fusion collection, Mar del Plata is offered in a special Slate finish in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses and available in 3,200mm x 1,600mm and 3,200 x 1,500mm slab formats. It is ideal for countertop (12mm), flooring and cladding applications (6mm).
The remarkable Mont Blanc, an homage to White Quartzite, is the newest addition to Neolith’s Classtone collection. Durable and stylish with a sophisticated marble look, this slab is highly popular due to its alluring qualities and low maintenance characteristics.
The enrapturing neutral tone draws inspiration from the pristine slopes and glamorous ski resorts of the French-Swiss Alps, combining a rich white background with subtle veining in deep black, oxide and ochre hues. The 100% natural slab has been uniquely crafted using a distinct technique where the inward relief of the stone is exactly where the veins are, delivering an original texture which is pleasing to the touch while evoking the soaring beauty of the alpine landscape.
Mont Blanc is offered in a Silk finish in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses and available in 3,200mm x 1,600mm and 3,200 x 1,500mm slab formats. It is ideal for countertop (12mm), flooring and cladding applications (6mm).
Representing the evolution of Neolith’s Steel Collection comes Sofia Cuprum, a mesmerizingly dark and sober surface inspired by the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid from world-renowned French architect, Jean Nouvel. The metallic slabs use a wide variety of diverse colors, patterns and textures, and have been manipulated to create surface effects through contrasting hues, mottling and varied degrees of patination. The semi-polished finish creates an irregular and burnished impression that gives the surface a worn-in, yet striking, touch and feel.
Neolith Sofia Cuprum is offered in Shine Silk finish in 6mm, 12mm and 20mm thicknesses and available in 3,200mm x 1,600mm and 3,200mm x 1,500mm slab formats. It is ideal for countertop (12mm & 20mm), flooring and cladding applications (6mm).
The growing demand in 2018 for both 3mm and 20mm thicknesses has encouraged Neolith to increase these ranges.
Four popular patterns have been added in 20mm to the 2019 catalogue: Pietra Di Piombo Silk, Estatuario 01 Polished, Calacatta Polished and Basalt Grey Satin. Aspen Grey Silk, Concrete Taupe Silk, Blanco Carrara 02 Silk and Calatorao Silk are now available in 3mm.
This brings 20mm collection to 24, offering a greater degree of variety and creativity to designers when using Neolith within the kitchen or bathroom environment.
Starting with the 2019 collection, the slabs have been created using a revolutionary production process that will deliver the same high-quality colors in a more ecologically-friendly way. HYDRO Neolith Digital Design 2.0 (HYDRO-NDD 2.0) uses the latest pigments existing in the industry to further enhance the saturation and details of the surface.
The new process achieves exactly the same, high-quality patterns, but with a far lower carbon footprint. This offers designers more possibilities than ever before to realize their dream spaces, while also emphasizing Neolith’s commitment to being the most sustainable sintered stone brand on the market.
With the new introductions, Neolith now offers over 60 different designs across its seven collections—in multiple finishes and thicknesses—providing specifiers with a broader range of design possibilities.
Neolith products are available in the U.S. and worldwide through a large network of distributors. For a location near you or to learn more, visit .
