SONAS Bathrooms launch TUD Student Design Award

SONAS Bathrooms TU Dublin

SONAS Bathrooms and TU Dublin (Technological University Dublin) recently announced details of a new student design award to find the 2022 Bathroom Design of the Year.   Students of the Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree in Design, led by one of Ireland’s best known Interior Designers Neville Knott, will be tasked to create a luxury bathroom for a contemporary hotel. One lucky student will have the opportunity to see their winning bathroom design brought to life in the SONAS showrooms along with a cash prize.  

Neville Knott said “This is an exciting competition for our students. As SONAS are the largest supplier of bathroom products in Ireland, there will be the opportunity to explore a variety of themes and styles in bathroom design with products from their extensive range. Working on real life projects is always a great experience for tomorrow’s designers. I know they will rise to the occasion, and I expect the standard of competition to be high.”

Richard Sloan, MD of SONAS Bathrooms said “We are looking forward to seeing the creativity of design students from TUD and see this as an opportunity to support the next generation of designers. Sustainability, wellness and technology all have a role to play in the modern bathroom. For this brief the focus is on the perfect hotel bathroom so I’m really looking forward to seeing the different designs that the students come up with.”  SONAS Bathrooms are Ireland’s leading bathroom brand and largest supplier of bathroom products.
