Duravit USA is excited to launch its 2016 Designer Dream Bath Competition, which takes on a special meaning this year as the company celebrates its 20th anniversary. The fourth annual competition invites designers and architects to re-imagine their own bathroom to feature a range of Duravit’s top collections and design solutions: Darling New with the innovative C-Bonded vanity/washbasin, P3 Comforts, Duravit Rimless Toilets, ME by Starck, DuraStyle, Happy D.2, L-Cube, Stonetto, and Light & Mirrors. The winner will receive up to $10,000 in product to help realize their design dreams. For the second time, the competition also features a Built category, in which designers and architects may submit their completed residential and/or commercial projects (from 2011-2016) featuring any Duravit products.
One winner will be selected and awarded the Duravit items used in his or her project up to a value of $15,000. Up to three other submissions will receive honorable mentions.
Built project: Projects, both residential and/or commercial, completed on or after January 1, 2011 may be submitted for consideration in this category and are eligible to receive up to $5,000 in product value.
Designer’s Own Bath (unbuilt project): This category is for the designers’ own bathroom redesign and one winner will be awarded the Duravit items used in his or her project up to a value of $10,000 and professional photography of the completed project.
Projects selected as winners and honorable mentions in both categories will be promoted to a broad range of design and lifestyle media, and will be announced during Duravit Design Week in early October.
Built project: Submissions in the “built project” category must include Duravit. By way of their submission, the designer agrees that their project has been completed between January 1, 2011 and the time their submission is entered. Renderings in the Built category will not be accepted.
Designer’s Own Bath (unbuilt project): The competition is open to all North American-based architects and designers. Participants in the “Designer’s Own Bath (unbuilt project)” category may only use the following collections in their designs: C-Bonded vanity/washbasin, P3 Comforts, Duravit Rimless Toilets, ME by Starck, DuraStyle, Happy D.2, L-Cube, Stonetto, and Light & Mirrors. Duravit is not responsible for installation of prize materials.
A panel of design experts will judge the submissions based on creativity, use of the Duravit product to overcome design challenges, and overall success of the reimagined space.
Submissions must be completed no later than Friday, September 23, 2016. Winners will be announced at Duravit’s New York City showroom during Duravit Design Week October 17-19, 2016.
