Sintered stone surfacing brand Neolith has opened a showroom at its headquarters in Castellón, Spain, created by in-house architect Giuliana Barandiarán.
It has been designed to showcase powerful design statements, while still being informal and homely.
The showroom illustrates how Neolith can be used architecturally, while demonstrating its latest patterns and colours from kitchens, bars and bathrooms through to flooring.
It includes a demonstration kitchen specified in New York-New York and flanked with shelving in Amazonico, as well as two-tone bar in Nero Marquina Polished and New York-New York.
In addition, there is a bath space clad in one of Neolith’s most exotic patterns Mar Del Plata.
Floors throughout the Neolith HQ Showroom are laid in a variety of patterns, including La Bohème, which mimics the look and feel of natural wood.
To enhance the space, Neolith has also incorporated high-end furniture, fixtures and fittings to simulate real-life settings, such as lighting from Flos, furniture from B&B Italia, Doca and Louis Poulsen.
Completing the showroom, the space contains an intricate world map, digitally carved into a slab of Basalt Black, and an interpretation of Magritte’s famous painting ‘Son of Man’, made using multiple Neolith colours and finishes.
They have been included to show how the material “can be worked to the most specific requirements.”
Commenting on the Neolith HQ Showroom, CSMO Mar Esteve Cortes says, “Establishing a physical presence globally has been crucial to engaging with our audience, boosting awareness and sales. Nowhere is this more important than at our head office, where we receive visitors on a daily basis, from distributors and fabricators to architects, specifiers, clients and media.
“Alongside the factory, Neolith HQ showroom provides essential context, offering a wide-ranging exploration of what can be accomplished when using our surfaces.
“Giuliana’s surpassed herself on this project, the artistic vision is original and creative, from the floors, walls and ceiling to the finer details, everything looks amazing.
“It was also great to get some amazing interior brands involved in the project, their products lift the space creating a unique setting in which to showcase Neolith.”
Neolith recently expanded its Six-S collection of surfacing with four additional decors.
