Neolith La Bohème stone wins award for natural wood appearance and texture

Neolith® La Bohème, by Spanish Sintered Stone manufacturer TheSize, has won the prestigious Plus X Award for ‘best product’ for the second year running.

La Bohème, from the Neolith Timber collection, was awarded for its innovation, high quality and startlingly realistic natural wood design. Inspired by the stem of a Lebanese Cedar, the combination of knots and veins emulate the appearance and texture of natural timber.

To bring the design to life and as close to nature as possible, both in appearance and texture, the slab is created through Neolith’s proprietary digital printing technology, Neolith Digital Design (NDD), and goes through an embossing process which gives the surface its 3D appearance.

Lightweight and versatile, La Bohème can be applied to any existing surface with ease including kitchen and bathroom worktops and showers, furniture, flooring and wall cladding. It’s Neolith’s first wood décor manufactured in 12mm thickness and introduced to the market in 2016.

Mar Esteve, Marketing Director, TheSize, comments:

“We’re extremely proud to win this prestigious award for the second year in a row. To be recognised for our innovation against tough competition is testament to the team’s hard work and continued effort in creating cutting-edge, design-led products.”
