Let’s use this time to build a better future

May 29, 2020

With the outbreak of COVID-19, Roca has decided to launch a special edition of its international design competition jumpthegap®, this time focused on proposing new products or services related to the functions of the bathroom space, such as sanitation, hygiene, and wellbeing, but that could now be required in so many spaces, public or private, in a covid scenario.

Through this special edition, and aware of the determination and creativity of the architecture and design communities, Roca offers its international platform, so that in just fifteen days,   they can create and share proposals that give added value to the new needs of society, with the aim of generating ideas for a better future.

"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 " said Xavier Torras, Roca Brand Communications Director.

 

Registration will be open on the official website www.jumpthegap.net from 29th  May to 10 am  on the 23rd June 2020, which also forms the project submission period, with all submissions due before the end of this window. The 5 selected projects will be announced on the 23rd of July.  

The competition will award 5 prizes of €1,000 each to the 5 selected projects.
