The 8th Roca jumpthegap® competition has been announced and will soon open registration for conceptual, sustainable and innovative solutions for the bathroom space of the future.
The competition is open to any architect, interior architect, industrial designer, interior designer, building engineer or another related professional under 40 years old. Students in architecture, industrial design, building engineering or other related discipline currently enrolled in an university, college or school under 36, are also eligible.
The 2018-2019 competition is endowed with 26,000 Euro in prizes: 10,000 Euro in the student category, 10,000 Euro in the professional category and a special We Are Water Foundation Prize awarded by the We Are Water Foundation of Roca, set at 6,000 Euro.
Roca is looking for new, innovative and sustainable concepts for the bathroom space of the future, taking into account that the viability of the project should not limit the creativity of the proposals.
These are designs that can bring forth their vision of conceptually futuristic and innovative bathroom solutions: new products, new spaces and/or new uses and functions. The anticipation of users’ new desires and needs, as well as (why not?) the transformation of dreams and desires into reality.
jumpthegap® is a biennial International Design Contest promoted by Roca with the collaboration of BCD Barcelona Design Center.
So far the competition has been held in seven editions. Over 20,600 participants from all over the world have joined it.
