Duravit Calls For 2018 Designer Dream Bath Competition Entries DULUTH, GA — Duravit has opened its 2018 Designer Dream Bath Competition and is now accepting submissions. In its sixth year, the contest honors designers and architects who creatively showcase a dream bathroom en- visioned with Duravit products, and includes both a Built and Unbuilt category. For the Unbuilt category, Duravit is asking designers to submit a sketch or rendering of their own bathrooms reimagined, incorporat- ing Duravit's latest furniture series – XSquare and Brioso – into their design. The winner of the Unbuilt Dream Bath Competition will receive the Duravit products included in their design at a value of up to $10,000. Meanwhile, the Built category will continue after its successful inception in 2015, seeking designer projects completed within the last five years that feature Duravit fixtures. The winning Built Dream Bath design will receive $5,000 in Duravit items. "Our competition prompts designers to find inspiration in the bathroom, proving how anyone's bathroom – no matter the size, location or budget – can be thoughtfully constructed to become a personal oasis," stated Duravit USA President Tim Schroeder. The competition officially closes for entries on Friday, September 7. Winners are chosen by an established panel of designers and design editors and are announced during Duravit Design Week (October 1-3, 2018) in New York City. Additional information, FAQs and forms for the competition are available online at www.duravit.us/competition. NKBA Endorses CEDIA Technology Expo ALPHARETTA, GA — CEDIA Expo, the event for the intelligently connected built environment, has announced a collaboration and endorsement from the Nation- al Kitchen & Bath Association as the event where kitchen and bath design and remodeling professionals connect with technology integrators to learn, network and collaborate. At CEDIA Expo, design professionals and technology integrators can network and share knowledge of their respective industries and explore how the two pro- fessions collaborate on current and developing projects. "Having an area on the show floor dedicated to technology and design inte- gration will spark needed conversations between the two professional groups," says Suzie Williford, NKBA's exec. v.p. of industry relations & CSO. "Kitchen and bath designers are hungry for products that will move the needle on technology integration in intelligently built environments." CEDIA Expo 2019 will feature the Design Connection Pavilion, an area on the show floor for design and construction professionals to discover and explore new smart products and brands that can be integrated into their residential and com- mercial designs. Debuting at CEDIA Expo 2018 is the Design Connection Tour series. A technol- ogy integrator will guide approximately 20 design and construction professionals on a tour of the show floor. Exhibitors boasting new and innovative solutions for the intelligently connected built environment professionals will be tour stops. Design Connection Pavilion exhibitors, Design Connection tour guides and tour-goers, select attendees and VIP media will meet at the Design Connection networking event, Bourbon and Brownies, also new to CEDIA Expo 2018. CEDIA Expo 2018 will run from September 6-8 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA.
