NEW YORK, NY—Duravit has launched its first North American design competition: the Duravit Designer Dream Bath Competition. This new program invites architects and designers to create a bath space from a range of Duravit’s latest launches, including the Starck 2, Happy D.2, and DuraStyle collections.
Using product offerings spanning furniture, sanitary ceramic and acrylic to inspire their designs, participants will use their own bathroom as the platform for their space. The winner will then be awarded the Duravit items used in his or her project up to a value of $15,000.
Duravit USA President Tim Schroeder, said in a statement, “We’re making our best new products available to participating designers and architects and look forward to seeing them implemented in their baths in an exciting, unique way.”
Participants may implement the My Pro planning feature of Duravit’s Pro website (pro.duravit.us) to further organize their ideas. Designers need only submit two views minimum (rendering or sketch and floor plan) and a “before” image, as well as a short submission form including details on their project challenges and objectives to the Duravit Competition microsite (www.duravit.us/competition).
Entries will then be judged by a panel of design media, with a winner chosen for creativity, use of the Duravit product to overcome design challenges, and overall success of the space. The competition officially kicks off on July 24 and runs through September 16. The winner will be announced at the company’s annual Design Week events in New York this October 8– 10.
