Headquartered in Castellón, Spain, TheSize was founded in 2009 with the objective of creating a new material category suitable for exterior and interior construction, from kitchen and bathroom worktops to furnishings, flooring and facades.
In 2011, the Neolith® brand was launched as a 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.
Neolith has near-zero porosity, making the product hygienic, stain resistant, easy to clean and impervious to chemicals. The product is also wear, scratch, heat-resistant and its colours, being natural base, do not vary when exposed to UV rays. Additionally, the product is lightweight and easy to install, making Neolith suitable for virtually every indoor and outdoor surface.
