Thank you to everyone who took part in the Victoria + Albert International Design Awards competition.
The number and quality of entries we received was incredibly high but after much consideration we are pleased to announce Stephan Pöppelmann from Germany is our chosen winner with his interesting interpretation of bathroom ‘zones’. The winning design was recreated at Salone del Mobile, Milan.
The brief: To design a compact bathroom measuring 2 x 3m, featuring Victoria + Albert’s products
The winner: Stephan Poppelmann, Germany.
The bathroom is divided into 2 distinct zones. The “Aqua Zone”, featuring the ios bath and the Tubo 21 shower. The “Comfort Zone” features a vanity with two ios 54 basins, providing ample space for 2 people. The two areas can be separated from each other by a sliding glass wall.
The choice of materials and colour scheme gives the room a natural, timeless appeal. The stone effect on the wall and floor tiles highlight the natural white gloss of the ios bath.
Atmospheric lighting, seating, storage and comfort have all been considered in this cleverly designed bathroom- proof that small can be perfect.
Stephan Popppelmann said of his winning design; “You need a lot of creativity, to design Bathrooms in small spaces, so it was an exciting challenge to create a Wellness Area with only 6 square metres. I ensured that functionality and appealing design can be implemented in a small bathroom, combining beauty and usability. I could’t believe it when I received the message, that I’d won the competition. It’s incredibly exciting to know that I’ll see my ideas coming to life at Salone del Mobile, one of the top destinations for global design.”
