Jump the gap represents Roca's support for future generations of designers.
With the third International Design Contest, Roca is proud to provide a platform for talented young designers, architects and interior designers. "Jump the gap" offers the opportunity to create and design innovative solutions for the bathroom and it's associated products.
With more than 50 years of experience in comprehensive management of the application of design and innovation, we at Roca know that more than 50% of the products that we will use in 10 years time have not yet been manufactured, let alone designed. So what will they be like?
A large part of those products incorporate concepts and technologies that we may not even be able to imagine today... or maybe we can. "Jump the gap" starts from the assumption that young creators design today whilst thinking about tomorrow; a tomorrow when the limitations of today will not apply and when new needs, architecture, technologies and products will emerge, helping us to improve people's lives by improving their well-being, hygiene and comfort.
This year, the Roca International Design Contest is aimed at creative people who think towards the future whilst designing today.
We are looking for designs that can bring forth their vision of conceptually innovative bathroom products and solutions: new products, new spaces and/or new uses and functions.
"Jump the gap" is a creative contest proposal that brings new and innovative concepts to the bathroom, understanding innovation as the anticipation of users' new desires and needs,
as well as the transformation of dreams and desires into reality.
