Nemo Tile, a New York-based provider of top-performing surface materials, is now stocking stone products across its five company showrooms for the first time in its 95-year history. The debut line, Think Thin, is composed of natural stone panels cut at a ground-breakingly delicate ½-inch thickness, making the products lighter weight and less expensive than traditional stone slabs. The company's third generation CEO and president, Matt Karlin, says the line marks a new direction for Nemo Tile. "We've built a reputation of reliability and consistency, and want to continue to provide our customers with the best products available. Thanks to the thinner panels of a revolutionary new product like Think Thin, we are now able to offer designers and homeowners the best of stone the same way we've provided them tile for nearly a century."
Though marble slabs have traditionally maintained a ¾-inch thickness, advances in technology allow for Think Thin slabs to be cut at a mere ½-inch thick. The stone tiles are available in sizes up to 4 x 4 feet and are durable, remaining intact from quarry to installer just like traditional slabs. The reduced thickness dramatically decreases the weight of stone shipments, which in turn decreases the cost and manpower required for both shipping and installation.
The Think Thin line is available in 12 classic stone colorways and in polished, honed and brushed finishes, offering a variety of textures and styles. The stone can be installed inside or outside, on both floors and vertical surfaces.
Finished panels are in stock at Nemo Tile's five showrooms throughout New York and Philadelphia, PA, and soon, Nemo Tile's first showroom in Red Bank, NJ, which will open in January 2017. Think Thin is available in 24-x 24-, 36- x 36- and 48- x 48-inch square slabs and 24- x 36- and 24- x 48-inch rectangles at a ½-inch thickness, with additional sizes at a traditional ¾- inch thickness. Following the release of Think Thin, Nemo Tile will introduce Lavagna — a new natural stone collection featuring neutral, pastel and dark tones that will bring a new palette to contemporary design.
