Today we’re visiting Afters Ice Cream shop in Orange California. The Orange Circle was originally founded in 1891 by Alfred Chapman and Andrew Glassell and has become a rich and historic part of the city that attracts thousands of locals weekly. Afters Ice Cream is known for its handcrafted ice cream and signature flavors. Afters Ice Cream has now opened it’s doors to the newest of over 20 locations which was designed by Randy Sanchez at State College Distributors and fabricated and installed by Kona Stone both located here in Orange County.
Neolith Estatuario Silk 6mm slabs were used for the face on the wrap around counter and Neoliths Nero Marquina Silk 12mm slabs were used for the dine-in bartops. Combining two classic marble looks creates a unique contrast that is sure to catch your eye. In addition to the beauty of the material, the choice to use Neolith is also in favor of its extreme durability. It’s near zero porosity makes it easy to clean, highly stain resistant and fully hygienic making it a safe eating space for customers.

Materials, Neolith, Neolith SlabsAfter years dedicated to exhaustive research and a commitment to innovation, TheSize now has a production plant that houses machinery and equipment which is state-of-the-art in the architectural surface sector. Among others, 4 exclusive Technologies particularly stand out, all of which are used with its star Neolith product.$23.40 – $58.70
Sintering Technology: compacting, resistance and durabilityIt consists of subjecting the 100% natural raw materials to very high pressures and temperatures. The combination of raw materials goes through a press in a first phase where force/pressure of up to 400 bars is applied. In a second phase, the boards are baked in an oven at a temperature of more than 1,200ºC. This way, the Sintering Technology used by TheSize gives Neolith physical and mechanical features which are unprecedented in the construction industry.
Full Body Technology: full body decorationReal full body technology that integrates the same color and design throughout the body for greater aesthetic and visible even edging. The technology used on 17 available models.
NAP (Neolith Airless Pistol) Technology: soft to the touchThis technology gives Neolith boards a texture that is soft to the touch. It is sprayed with the NAP Technology before entering in the oven to give the surfaces a silky finish known as the Silk finish.
NDD (Neolith Digital Design) Technology: digital decorationA Technology developed by TheSize which revolutionizes and increases the design possibilities offered by Neolith for richer details and a surprising degree of realism. Technology used on more than 30 available models.

Nero MarquinaNeolith’s answer to a timeless monochromatic trend that transcends interior design, fashion, and architecture, this décor is an indispensable part of these introductions. Inspired by marble from Spain, Nero Marquina is a testament to the technical expertise present at TheSize. To achieve bright white veining on a pure black backdrop is a task testing enough on paper, but for a slab, a new technical avenue is entered. For this challenge, TheSize has developed an exclusive technique to achieve the stark contrast and distinct new lines. Available in Polished and Silk finishes and in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses, it is ideal for floors, walls, bathroom, and kitchen worktops, as well as furniture.
