Think different: a showroom's potential

Leading brand of Sintered Stone, Neolith® announced the opening of new showroom in Düsseldorf.

With locations already in London, Madrid and Milan, and another set to open in Amsterdam, the Düsseldorf showroom is the latest addition to the Neolith Urban Boutique (NUB).

Interior designer Niels Karsten Kniest of nkk raumkonzepte transformed a large production hall into the spectacular showroom that displays Sintered Stone’s potential, along with focusing on customer experience. The NUB series aim to re-conceptualise traditional showrooms as an imaginative exhibition space.

As visitors enter the showroom, they are immediately made aware of the diverse application of the materials, shown by the kitchen, library space and freestanding bath. Throughout the ample space, bathrooms, shower rooms and vanity units come in a range of different styles to help designers experience Neolith’s creative potential.

Niels Karsten Kniest took the showroom’s design another step further by including less conventional Sintered Stone applications such as a fireplace, ceiling cladding, herringbone parquet and customised tile formats.

“The main theme behind the design is ‘think different’.” - Niels Karsten Kniest.

By looking at things fully and playing with possibilities, Kneiist has managed to show the unexpected to encourage visitors to view the material with new perspectives.

Popular patterns from the brand include Estatuario and Calacatta Gold, organic La Boheme and Arena, industrial Beton, and dusky Nero Zimbabwe and Pulpis.

Sintered Stone have invited local architects to join the celebratory opening, beginning with an introduction from Michael Jamann, Neolith’s German consultant, about the idea behind the showroom. This will then be followed by award-winning architect, Pau Llimona, who will give a presentation on the incredible interiors of Albert Adria’s celebrated Enigma restaurant. After the talks, guests then explore the multiple applications in situ.
