Roca, in collaborazione con BCD Barcelona Design Centre, promuove la settima edizione dell'International Design Contest Jumpthegap, il concorso che ricerca idee nuove, innovative e sostenibili per lo spazio del bagno.

Il concorso di interior design è rivolto a giovani designer, architetti e studenti di design o architettura che sono invitati a creare una soluzione sostenibile, innovativa ed esteticamente valida per il bagno e per i prodotti ad esso collegati.

La sostenibilità è uno dei più importanti principi da tenere in considerazione quando si vuole rendere il bagno uno spazio più innovativo. Roca vuole garantire prodotti orientati verso il risparmio dell'energia e il contenimento dei consumi idrici.

Jumpthegap is an International Design Contest promoted by Roca since 2004 with the collaboration of BCD Barcelona Design Centre that is looking for new, innovative and sustainable concepts for the bathroom space.

This seventh jumpthegap, aimed at creative people who think towards the future whilst designing today, is a very special edition as it coincides with Roca's centenary celebration (1917-2017).

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. 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 crea- te and design innovative sustainable solutions for the bathroom and related products.

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.

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 young applicants from every country in the world and has two categories:

  • Professional category: designers or architects born from 1 January 1982 onwards.
