Villeroy & Boch have kicked off their first North American Designer Bathroom Challenge, inviting architects and licensed designers to develop a concept for a contemporary and multisensory bathroom design for the chance to win a trip to Germany.
Bathrooms are an essential part of daily life from the moment you jump into the shower in the morning to brushing your teeth before hopping into bed at night. While well-designed bath and wellness products that are easy to use and maintain are essential for functionality, when they are enhanced with complementing textures, sounds, scents and lighting, the functional bathroom space is transformed into a true multisensory experience. Villeroy & Boch is challenging architects and designers to incorporate both of these elements into their design, creating a functional and a multisensory space.
The main prize is a trip to Germany to attend the leading ISH 2015 industry fair in Frankfurt and to visit Villeroy & Boch’s historic headquarters in Mettlach, where the winner will stay in a traditional European castle. Two additional submissions will be selected to receive honorable mentions and a people’s choice winner will be selected by ArchDaily readers based on the number of Facebook shares.
Architects and licensed designers located in the US and Canada for the main prize. Non-North American and student submissions will be considered for honorable mention and the popular vote win.
