Roca has launched a special edition of its Jumpthegap international design contest.

The focus will be on new products or services related to the functions of the bathroom – such as sanitation, hygiene and wellbeing, that will now be increasingly important in a covid scenario.

The company is hoping that architects and designers will create and share proposals that give added value to the new needs of society, with the aim of generating ideas for a better future.

Xavier Torras, Roca brand communications director says, “We are facing a new scenario, a new normal, with new needs in all aspects related to personal hygiene, cleaning and disinfection, that will not be limited to the bathroom, but will spread further in other areas. The perception of users in regard to moving in a safe environment and using safe products, both at home and in the public sphere, will be vital in this new context and for this reason Roca launch this competition with a brief that is not only limited to the bathroom space.”

Jumpthegap® with the collaboration of BCD (Barcelona Design Centre) has held eight editions to date, with more than 25,000 participants from 150 countries. It offers a platform where international architecture and design students and professionals can showcase their talent by providing innovative solutions.

The competition is open until 23rd June. Find our more Here
