German sanitation branch announces second international award for bathroom products designed for All
For the second time, the ZVSHK, the German Sanitation, Heating and Air Conditioning Association, is launching its international design prize for barrier-free bathroom products for all generations. Manufacturers and producers are invited to submit bathroom products that adhere to the principles of Design for All for the ZVSHK Bathroom Design for All Product Award.
To encompass the full extent of bathroom fittings, this year not only sanitary ware manufacturers but also producers of electrical equipment, doors, windows, bathroom furniture and wall and floor surfacing materials may also submit their bathroom products. Submissions can be made online on www.zvshk-award.com from 1 September 2014. The winners will be announced on 12 March 2015 at the ISH 2015, the world’s leading sanitation, heating and air conditioning trade fair in Frankfurt am Main in Germany.
Dr. Barbara Hendricks, the German Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety, will act as patron for the award. An international jury of experts will assess all product submissions according to the principles of Design for All, and the jury is supported by Design for All – Germany (EDAD).
This year the Verband Wohneigentum, the German Association of Homeowners, joins the award as a new cooperation partner. Design for All Europe (EIDD), the German Sanitary Industry Association (VDS) and the German Federation of Domestic Installation Wholesalers (DGH) continue their support of the ZVSHK Product Award as they did for the first iteration of the competition. The SBZ Branch Magazine, published by Gentner Verlag in Stuttgart, will once again act as media partner.
