In the second exhibition marking the centenary of Spanish bathroom brand Roca, the company draws on the expert knowledge it has amassed since 1917. It explores how the experiences and insights over the last 100 years have successfully influenced Roca product design, challenged established thinking and mirrored changes in our lifestyles and society at large. The exhibition also highlights the important role played by manufacturing progress and advances in raw materials.
The exhibition will highlight the importance of design and innovation at the company, recognising the creativity, research and inspiration behind new collections, materials and production processes. It also addresses the adaptation that has been needed to reach new markets, as Roca set about interpreting the cultures of over 170 countries it operates in.
In addition to design, the exhibition will look at how manufacturing processes have changed. Familiar, everyday items they may be but every single bathroom piece is the product of significant technical and manufacturing investment and expertise.
Roca will also examine how the bathroom has evolved over the last 100 years and consider the impact made by technology advancements, water efficiency and sanitaryware design. A series of free evening events at Roca London Gallery will accompany the exhibition.
