The Edison Awards, celebrating 31 years of honoring innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services, has announced that Neolith SKYLINE + PURETi was voted the Gold Collective Disruption Winner at The Capitale in New York City.
The Neolith SKYLINE + PURETi treatment offers architects and designers a sustainable surface for residential and commercial building façades. The PURETi surface treatment transforms Neolith sintered stone façades into self-cleaning air purifiers – consequently reversing pollution, improving air quality, and enabling the slabs to stay cleaner for even longer.
Travis Conrad, architectural consultant at Neolith by TheSize, and Glen Finkel, cofounder and president of PURETi, joined hundreds of senior executives to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of all of the 2018 Edison Award winners.
Being recognized with an Edison Award has become one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose inventions, new product development methods and achievements literally changed the world, garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents, and made him a household name around the world.
“Our judges recognized Neolith SKYLINE + PURETi as an innovator out of the many products in its category,” says Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards.
The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical.
“We are thrilled that joining forces with PURETi has enabled Neolith to take its sintered stone surfacing to the next level and become an Edison Awards Gold winner,” says Mar Esteve, director of marketing, TheSize Surfaces. “We pride ourselves on being a part of design projects around the world, and now we are able to improve buildings with surfaces that heal the environment.”
