Neolith Launches Six•S Collection

Posted on 06 August 2020 by cradmin3

Over the course of the last several weeks Neolith has launched its newest collection, SIX•S. This new, responsible range, influenced by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, evokes six essential Neolith® characteristics: Solidary, Sanitary, Strong, Stylish, Sensory and Sustainability.

The SIX•S Collection consists of:

Himalaya Crystal pays homage to the region’s famous salt crystals which have been mined in the region since the days of Alexander the Great. Bold veining sublimely contrasts with subtle spontaneity and a slight translucency adds to the authenticity. This delivers a clean, crystalline appearance, which appears to elegantly illuminate any space in which it’s applied.

Layla (pictured) evokes the magic and mysticism of 1,001 Arabian Nights. Seamlessly combining an array of light and dark grey hues and tones, this color is a bold yet elegant statement.

The Emirate’s capital’s striking Sheikh Zayed Mosque, has influenced the selection of the model colors in Abu Dhabi White, which stands out for its soft golden veining and flecks of flinty grey, creating a subtle and delicate look. Combined with the texture of natural unpolished stone, this slab delivers a refreshing look and feel of minimalism.

Amazonico encapsulates dark and mysterious tones, representing the dense forest floor gradually giving way to lighter colors which reference the gradual emergence from the tree canopy. Highly exclusive, this sophisticated slab has a special texture, further enhancing its natural qualities.

Inspired by the majestic, slow-growing pines surrounding Sweden’s breathtaking Lake Siljan, Winter Dala and Summer Dala are named after one of the country’s national symbols, Dalecarlian Horses. Hand-carved, to a high-degree of craftsmanship, the special sculptures evoke enduring strength, refinement and beauty.

Dala is produced in two tones, Summer and Winter, one representing a profile of freshly cut timber, the other a weathered look calling to mind the dramatic, windswept coast of the North Sea.

Similar to other timber-inspired designs in the range, Summer and Winter Dala faithfully recreate cross sections of real trees, without the need to fell them, delivering a positive environmental impact.

Dekton Ultracompact Sintered Surface Performance Tests

Posted on 10 June 2014 by cradmin

There has been a lot of interest shown in the new Dekton ultracompact sintered surfacing product introduced by Cosentino back in December, so when we ran across this video showing some “performance tests” on the new material, it caught our interest. While this video, which is admittedly put out by Cosentino, is obviously meant to put the material in a good light, it does show the Dekton material being subjected to some rather harsh treatment, including having a torch put to it, scratching, spray painting and setting a hot pan on the surface. And, the material seems to hold up pretty good. But don’t take my word for it, see it for yourself, and let us know what you think.

And feel free to suggest we post a video you have made or come across by sending us a link at [email protected].
