Calling all Canadian entries: Victoria + Albert Design Awards
Victoria + Albert, a global brand with a worldwide reputation for creating beautiful baths, has announced its first annual Victoria + Albert Design Awards. The company is reaching out to the design community to design a visionary bath space that captures the spirit of the Victoria + Albert brand.
The competition is open to all Canadian-based architects, designers and students and entry is free. Victoria + Albert looks forward to engaging with the Canadian design community to see designers’ bath visions using Victoria + Albert products.
The only Victoria + Albert prerequisite is that the bathroom design space is achieved using the Victoria + Albert’s Amiata bathtub, Amiata 60 basin(s) and either the Staffordshire or Tubo faucets and tub fillers. All of Victoria + Albert’s baths and basins are crafted of Englishcast – a composite material rich in finely ground Volcanic Limestone that is cast in one seamless piece.
The competition will be judged by the duo of established Italian designers Sandro Meneghello and Marco Paolelli, and will be based on the success of the re-imagined space and the way in which the Amiata Collection has been included in the design.
PRIZE: Macbook Pro or design software to equivalent value
TARGET: Architects, designers and students located in Canada
DEADLINE: Mar. 19, 2015
WINNER: Will be announced at Victoria + Albert’s suite at SOFA, Toronto (Source of Furniture and Accessories) in April
REQUIREMENTS: Victoria + Albert’s Amiata tub, Amiata 60 Basin and either the Tubo faucets or the Staffordshire faucets must be used along with a short concept explanation and at least 2 project views: a rendering or sketch and a floor plan
