From a short list of 30 projects, the Jump the Gap jury has selected the winner who will receive a prize of 5,000 euros.
The Jump the Gap International Design Contest, created by Roca, with the collaboration of the BCD (Barcelona Design Center), is aimed at architecture and design professionals and students aged under 35 from around the world, and represents an opportunity for them to present the most innovative solutions for the bathroom space.
Created to be so much more than just a display space, the Roca London Gallery will become the focus for a wide range of activities, the criteria being a celebration of design in keeping with the Roca brand and company values and therefore the perfect place to present the Jump the Gap award.
