Posted in Events, News on 22 May, 2017

Roca’s internationally acclaimed One Day Design Challenge is coming to the UK for the first time this year. Taking place on Saturday 17 June at the Roca London Gallery, this exciting competition invites young designers to showcase their creative talents and design innovative concepts for bathroom-related spaces. The winner or winning team will receive a prize on the day of £1000.

“The One Day Design Challenge will also take place in Lisbon, Madrid and Barcelona, Russia, UAE, Oman, Shangai, Hong Kong, but this year is the first opportunity for the UK design community to show what they can do,” said Alan Dodds, Roca UK’s Managing Director. “This intense day of competition both supports and engages emerging designers in the drive to improve the bathroom experience, focusing our brightest minds on functional considerations as well as matters of space, sustainability and well-being. Roca encourages all contestants to be bold in demonstrating their innovation, creativity and design intelligence. We’re looking forward to an exhilarating day of competition.”

Entries will be judged on their creativity, originality and viability as well as the clarity and graphic design of the showcase presentations. The One Day Design Challenge jury will be announced shortly.

Alongside the £1000 prize for the competition winner or winning team, cash prizes will also be awarded on the day for second and third places at £650 and £350 respectively.
