Neolith for high-end restaurants

Neolith sintered stone by TheSize is increasingly present in restaurants. Its technical and aesthetic features give designers many possibilities of application.

Among the main ones of the Spanish company there are: the futuristic ENIGMA of the chef Albert Adrià (Spain); the Miramar of Paco Pérez (Spain); Il lusso della semplicità of Alessandro Borghese (Italy), Confusion of Italo Bassi (Italy); KUTCHiiN of Holger Stromberg (Germany).

In this regard, the Director of Neolith Mar Esteve Cortes tells: “The pleasure of going out for a meal goes beyond gastronomy. Be it is an informal or exclusive occasion, people love to discover places worth returning to, personalized environments where every detail has been carefully studied. Classic or contemporary, natural or industrial, contrasting or complementary tones, our wide range of colors can reach a wide spectrum of effects that helps ensure unforgettable dining experiences”.

For the style, the clear marble effect is the favorite of many locations, such as the Mediterranean Ricarda's Restaurant, in Toronto (Canada), which symbolizes a growing trend in which casual and formal spaces coexist. Here the main products are Calacatta Polished and Beluga Loves You that focuses on the wide grains of Neolith Estatuario, a faithful interpretation of Carrara marble, which can give a classic look to a contemporary space.

There is also a growing interest for dark materials: for example, Basalt Gray, inspired by the dark igneous rock, was chosen for The Kitchen at Chewton Glen as an elegant theme of the entire multifunctional space.

On the other hand, Xochi in Texas (USA) uses a contrast between Neolith Basalt Black and lighter elements that add depth to the dining room.

Aesthetics is crucial in the so-called experiential marketing, but performance and safety are essential requirements for a material intended for the Horeca sector: used for the counter of the café La Traviesa (Spain), Neolith Iron Moss achieves a delicate industrial effect, resistant and indestructible over time, thus requiring less maintenance than metal alloys. Moreover, the steel profiles for the sintered stone kitchen countertops, adopted as a precaution, minimize the risk of perforations and scratches caused by sharp edges, especially on thinner surfaces.
