First edition of One Day Design Challenge by Roca held in Oman

Muscat - 

With more than 200 participants, the project ‘Luxmyrious bathtub’ by Al Reyan Ansari, has been awarded the first prize of the first edition of the One Day Design Challenge by Roca at KR Infra Campus, Ghala.

The competition was an ideal opportunity for Oman's best design and architectural minds to prove the ability to work against the clock and be innovative. The concept that all participants in Oman have needed to follow has been an answer to their own understanding of luxury, proposing a concept that includes new features and functions, usability, installation, technology and materials.

This year, the competition reached Oman with the support of its partner Khimji Ramdas Infrastructure Group. “Roca is a global brand recognised for designing and developing products that are focused on saving water and we are very proud to be representing it,” N S Vijaya Kumar, CEO, KR Infrastructure Group.

‘Luxmyrious bathtub’ by Ansari won the RO600 prize. “The idea of luxury is illustrated beautifully in the sleekness of the design and the ambiance created,” said Maryam al Balushi, architect/proposal manager at F&M Middle East Engineering Consultancy (AIA) and member of the jury.

“We truly believe in the importance of creating different platforms to help students and young professionals develop their creativity, as they represent the future,” said Xavier Torras, Roca Brand communication
director.
