On 17th June, the Roca London Gallery will host the first United kingdom edition of the One Day Design Challenge, aimed at young designers and architects under the age of 30.
The challenge will provide an amazing experience and environment for contestants to explore Roca's essence and values, such as innovation and design through their projects.
Participants of the competition will face the challenge of creating a new design related to the bathroom space in less than 10 hours. Roca's aim is to engage with the community of young designers to discover original and innovative solutions for the bathroom. Three winners will be chosen based on innovation, sustainability and adaptability.
Participants can win three prizes worth up to £2,000 and their designs will be seen by a prestigious jury of leading architects and designers.
