Two manufacturers represented by Florida-based Tile of Spain have snagged 2012 KBCulture Awards for innovation in ceramics. The Size won in the Surfacing category for its Neolith porcelain slabs, a 5/16-inch-thick product that can be ordered up to 145 inches long. Such a great flexibility in length allows for vast stretches of counter free of joints and seams. Additionally, the porcelain is heat and scratch resistant and is available in a range of bright and neutral colors. "The thinness of the material contradicts its categorization as a 'slab' surfacing," states KBCulture founder Leslie Clagett. "It's more like a 'sheet'. Installers should appreciate the lightness of the product - it's so much easier to lift and move than stone contours. It gives an especially modern look with an undermount sink."

    Additionally, Eco-Logik porcelain floor tile by Plaza Cerámicas received an honorable mention in the Tile category thanks to its sustainable manufacturing practices and performance; it's produced from 85 percent recycled material and is non-porous, slip-resistant, and durable. Eco-Logik also boasts a 25-year warranty for residential use that proves the manufacturer's confidence in the tile's performance. Tile of Spain represents 200 ceramic tile manufacturers all belonging to the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers' Association (ASCER), while KBCulture is an online review of international products, places, and perspectives central to kitchen and bath design.
