Neolith Announces Fifth Annual International Design Competition
TheSize, manufacturer of sintered stone brand Neolith, has announced its fifth annual international design competition. This global competition – with three submission categories open now through November 11, 2018 – highlights creativity and innovation of designs incorporating Neolith surfacing by architects, interior designers, builders, remodelers, students and fabricators.
For each category, a team of industry judges will focus on the proposal’s originality, presentation creativity, technical complexity, variety of Neolith applications, quality before-and-after images and the degree of environmental sensitivity in the project. The grand prize for each category includes an all-inclusive trip to Salone del Mobile Milano show in April 2019, valued at approximately $5,000. Winners will be announced on December 20, 2018 via Neolith’s website and social media channels.
“My Neolith Project” is open to design professionals that have recently developed a contemporary, residential design project incorporating Neolith in multiple applications, such as façades, flooring, cladding, kitchens, bathrooms, furniture, swimming pools and more. The project should also highlight today’s modern design trends such as use of mixed materials, neutral elements and soft lines. To be eligible, the project must have been completed between 2015-2018, outside of Spain.
This year’s “Neolith New Talents” is open to architecture, design and interior design students enrolled in at least one class from 2017-2019. Neolith is challenging participants to virtually design a contemporary-style home meeting design trends such as: a mix of materials, neutral elements and soft lines.
Students will design different rooms in the home without limitations on budget. Successful projects will integrate Neolith through different applications and atmospheres such as dining rooms, bedrooms or outdoor areas while considering Neolith slabs available to them.
The Top Fabricator of the Year category recognizes the most meticulous and labor-intensive projects made by fabricators with Neolith slabs. Projects will be evaluated as “little great works of art” that are technically complicated and require outstanding knowledge, ingenuity and the skills to produce them. To participate, projects must be completed between 2015-2018, outside of Spain.
