In Between the Lines

The lines between humanity and technology are blurring, yet nature remains a grounding factor. It’s this “blurred lines” theme that serves as the basis for SurfaceSet 2020, a collection of new woodgrains, solids and patterned Formica Laminate designs intended to help interior designers create beautiful and functional spaces. A combination of raw elements and natural warmth give this palette a familiar sense of security with a hint of exploratory wonder.

Hyper-Realistic

Neolith is taking the design of its material even further with Full Body Veining. The process achieves veins throughout the entire slab and not just the surface of the sintered stone material, replicating the 3D veining found in genuine stone such as marble. The hyper-realistic effect will be visible in the slab’s edges and will thus be implemented in the 0.5-in. and 0.75-in. thickness models.

Crafted with one stone at a time, the Sonja is offered in a variety of motifs from geometrical to botanical.

Color Contrast

With a pleasingly minimalistic design, +SEGMENTO Y deliberately focuses on black, white and gray, and matte surfaces, to create a powerful color contrast for any kitchen. Handless cabinet elements extend from floor to ceiling and highlight the philosophy of the brand: to design not only a kitchen, but a living space. The nanotech material used on the front surfaces is repeated on the worktops and back panels, creating a consistently flawless impression.
