Description

Neolith® Retrostone is an elegant surface with a beautiful grosgrain effect inspired by Terrazzo, a traditional manufacturing solution for using marble and granite pieces placed directly in concrete. This technique has a long history: it was widely used by Venetian stonecutters in 16esiècle, to produce a hypnotic and kaleidoscopic effect; a true classic of design.

Throughout 2017, Neolith has seen an increase in demand for Terrazzo, as well as other classic stone designs from architects and specifiers. This colorful and playful stone, once popular, used floors for DIY applications, is experiencing a new life as a fashionable surface in residential environments and beyond. Characterized by bold patterns and cosmopolitan sophistication, Terrazzo has regained popularity largely thanks to its ecological qualities and the simplicity of its maintenance.

Neolith® Retrostone evokes the mosaic aesthetic that has made Terrazzo such a popular choice for interior designers in the 1950 and 1960 years, and brings this design closer to a contemporary audience.

Maker

THESIZE

Headquartered in Castellón, Spain, TheSize was founded in 2009 with the aim of creating a new category of adaptable material for exterior and interior construction: kitchen and bathroom countertops, furnishings, upholstery floor and facades.

In 2011, the Neolith® brand was launched as a high-end compact surface with revolutionary physical and technical characteristics. Neolith®, which stands for "New Stone", combines the best natural raw materials with state-of-the-art technology to create a high-tech slab.

Neolith® products are created through the company's patented technology sintering, exposing minerals and other raw materials to extremely high pressures and temperatures (over 1200 degrees Celsius / 2200 degrees Fahrenheit), and the result reminds us the natural formation of stones over thousands of years, in just a few hours.

The process gives the product outstanding mechanical and physical properties in terms of compaction, strength and durability.

The different styles of the collections are the result of the Neolith® innovative decoration technique, the Neolith Digital Design (NDD, Neolith Digital Design). This system has revolutionized Neolith® models and pushes the boundaries of color and texture possibilities for compact surfaces.
