Introduction

Roca One Day Design Challenge returned to Spain in 2021!

Due to the current health crisis, this year the contest was exceptionally held online.

To maintain the spirit and experience of the competition, different workspaces were set up at the Galleries in Madrid and Barcelona for those participants who wished to spend the day with us.

Contestants were faced to redesign the kitchen sink and faucet space by adding new functionalities

The first prize winning project, “Swell” was created by Federico DomenechThe jury members explained that the project achieved a good balance between function and form and it proposed a very innovative solution, that easily solves the different functions that a sink has, turning a sink into a more versatile element.  Apart from that, the concept on which it is based is very original and the idea was transmitted clearly and directly.

The second award of the night went to the Daniel de Jesús Polo for his project “Matrioska”. The jury members highlighted how the project solved the optimization of day-to-day spaces and elements and its versatility and aesthetics.

Finally, Stella Rosa Ferrazzo was awarded with the third prize with ther project “Flink”. She applied in an innovative way an ecological material which is easy to produce, long-lasting and does not decompose.  For the jury members, Flink had also versatile in its design.

Patricia Bustos

FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR - PATRICIA BUSTOS STUDIO 

Enterprising, passionate and creative, Patricia has had a vocation for design since she can remember. She combines an analytical and entrepreneurial profile with creative skills for fashion design, art and decoration.
A painter and furniture designer by vocation, she considers herself an artist and interior designer. With a degree in Business from CUNEF and a Master’s degree in Fashion Design from Saint Martins College of Arts, Patricia has developed her aesthetic and creative sensibility through her different projects.

Enchanted by beauty, she believes that the environment has a direct impact on our mood and a beautiful environment will help us to be happy. She faces every project from a different perspective to be able to innovate and make each space unique and personal. Her aesthetic references come from her past in fashion (she worked for Inditex) to create from abstract concepts. Her clients look for singularity in her, they want their house to be unique, and everything is designed within her firm, from shelves to faucets.

Her interiors are deep reflections on a concept that is on her mind at the time. “Each project leads me to better understand the world and myself,” she acknowledges. She loves to create, imagine and dream new and different things, she is obsessed with that… newness and beauty are the two essential pillars to design a space.
