Calacatta Luxe is the latest release from Neolith®, and is available worldwide for all interior and exterior surfacing applications. Building on Neolith’s popular Calacatta slabs, which are inspired by world famous Italian Carrara Marble, Calacatta Luxe takes the pattern to the next level, turning up the contrast for dramatic effect.
Based on a model stone hewn from a Tuscan quarry, Calacatta Luxe perfectly embodies the unique attributes of one of the world’s most precious and sought-after marbles. Incorporating elements of Calacatta Crema and Calacatta Oro, it’s a surface guaranteed to bring a degree of originality to any architectural or interior design project.
Calacatta Luxe combines striations of dark grays, inky blues, tobacco browns and subtle golds for a mesmerizing vein, contrasting against a bright white background. Perfect as a centerpiece within any space, whether used for a stylish kitchen island, striking splashback, chic shower cubicle or even an unconventional swimming pool lining.
While capturing the magic and refinement of Italian marble, Calacatta Luxe embodies the super-resistant, high-performance and ultra-hygienic qualities inherent in all of Neolith’s surfaces. It is ideal for worktops, furniture and floors.
The surface is offered in Polished and Ultrasoft finishes, in ¼” and ½” thicknesses and is available in 125” x 64” and 125” x 60” formats. The Ultrasoft finish has been developed to mimic the true feel of clean cut, unpolished natural marble. It responds to an increasingly popular trend for tactile surfacing materials which are as pleasant to the touch as they are to look at.
Sintered Stone is a 100% natural material based on granite minerals, glass minerals and natural oxides:
- Granite Materials: Quartz and feldspar, giving hardness and strength to the surface
- Glass minerals and silica, which ensures chemical stability
- Natural oxides, which deliver chromatic properties
Neolith is produced using the very latest in sintering technology, replicating the thousands of years’ process by which natural stone is formed in a matter of hours.
The raw materials which form the slab are first subjected to extremely high pressure, going through a pressing machine where a weight of 400 bars is applied. In the second phase of the process, the slab goes through a kiln where temperatures reach more than 1200° C (2200° F). This process of ultra-compaction creates full-body surfaces with unique technical features.
Neolith has always been at the forefront of sustainable approaches within all of its manufacturing processes. A 100% natural composition requires an equally ecological production method.
Building on the brand’s pioneering Neolith Digital Design (NDD), it has aimed to incorporate organic practice into the way they print their slabs. Hydro-NDD 2.0 takes the technology to the next level. Using a water-based ink, as opposed to the industry standard solvent base, Neolith has succeeded in offering a sustainable surface which never compromises on the quality expected from its Sintered Stone. All its slabs maintain the same definition and detail of pattern and design.
