Chef Juan Amador and Neolith

Chef: Juan Amador
Restaurant: Amador Wirtshaus & greißlerei
City: Vienna, Austria

For two Michelin-starred chef Juan Amador, a career in cookery was not his first choice when he was growing up. In his words it “evolved over time”, maturing like a fine wine until his talent was identified and the merits of his cuisine recognised, “you start to get noticed and receive your first ratings.”

Returning to aesthetics, to achieve the desired concrete look, Neolith® Beton Silk was chosen for the worktops and the central island in the kitchen.

For Amador the significance of specifying Neolith® goes beyond look and feel: “It is important to have a big, well-known and experienced company to support you. It inspires confidence as they have the capacity to help realise my vision, but are also flexible should any changes occur to the original brief. Furthermore, given my roots, it was emotionally important to me that Neolith was founded, and is produced, in the country of my ancestors, Spain.”
