Appena lanciata al Bejing Design Week la sesta edizione del "Roca International Design Contest". Gli studenti e i giovani progettisti nati dopo il 1980 si sfidano per creare soluzioni e prodotti innovativi per il bagno.

Jumpthegap is an International Design Contest promoted by Roca with the collaboration of BCD Barcelona Design Centre that is looking for new, innovative and sustainable concepts for the bathroom space.

We understand the innovation concept as the anticipation of users' new desires and needs, as well as (why not?) the transformation of dreams and desires into reality.

The sustainability is one of the most important principles to take into account when innovating in the bathroom space. In the era we are living, we have to grantee products oriented to the saving of water, energy and resources.

Jumpthegap offers the opportunity to young designers or architects and design or architecture students to create and design innovative sustainable solutions for the bathroom and related products. This is the evidence that Roca is betting for the support of the new generations of designers and architects.

This sixth edition of Roca International Design Contest is aimed at creative people who think towards the future whilst designing today.

More than 50% of the products that we will use in 10 years have not yet been manufactured, much less designed. So what will they be like?

A large part of those products incorporate concepts and technologies that we may not even be able to imagine today... or maybe we can. Jumpthegap starts from the assumption that young creative people design today whilst thinking about tomorrow; a tomorrow when the limitations of today will not apply and when new needs, architecture, technologies and products will emerge which will help us to improve people's lives by bringing them more well-being, hygiene and comfort. 

These are designs that can bring forth their vision of conceptually innovative bathroom products and solutions: new products, new spaces and/or new uses and functions.

The contest is open to applicants from every country in the world who are:

  • Young designers or architects,
  • Design or architecture students.

All participants must be born from 1 January 1980 onwards
