STILL YOU – Sanna Völker & Marta Cuquet

Josep Congost (Roca), Marta Cuquet and Sanna Völker (winners), Kazuyo Sejima (president of the jury) and Isabel Roig (BCD)


The Still You project, designed by Sanna Völker, a Product Design student at IED Barcelona Escola Superior de Disseny, and Marta Cuquet, Interior’s Design student at the same school, is the winner of the 5th edition of Jump the Gap.

‘Still You’ presents an innovative bathroom solution: it is an ergonomic toilet adapted to elder people, with a modern and contemporary profile, that suffer from physical difficulties or limited mobility. This design offers a solution to satisfy their needs.

The project has born based on sociology. Many times, when thinking about the future, we tend to think of things which are very technology-driven, and this led us to explore a more conceptual and sociological path. It is a product which would be easily manufactured nowadays, but whose future perspectives are focused on society's changing trends.

With a height of 60 cm, a safe design and armrests, this toilet offers independent use to users with physical difficulties or limited mobility.
