We’re launching the first international design contest

"New skins for the bathroom" is the leitmotif that conveys the entirety of Finish Studio's essence. To provide uniqueness, personality and add the perfect touch of colour to a room where we are ourselves and feel free and at ease in our own skin. 

With the aim of supporting crafts and promoting creativity, Noken presents the first edition of its international design competition. A contest aimed at everyone who is as passionate about craftsmanship and design as we are.

What should my entry for the competition be like?

The creative process leading to the final idea is the most important part of any project. We want to offer an opportunity to give a new skin to our Slender washbasins.

The artisanal spirit characterises these unique hand-painted jewels for the bathroom. There are as many pieces as elements in nature, as many pieces as artists who turn the blank canvas into a unique work with its own essence.

If you dream of your own design, now you can make it a reality. The goal for entering our competition is to come up with a fully personalised piece that says something about you. With complete freedom of expression and the colours that bring out the most creative you, share with us a digital illustration that reflects the theme of "new skins".

How does the contest work?

Key dates to remember

Participation in the competition will be open from 3 October to 12 December 2022. During this time, everyone who meets the requirements in the rules and wants to enter must submit their design, together with a brief explanation of the inspiration that led them to that design and what it means to the creator.

After this initial phase, we will begin a public voting stage that will last from 12 December to 8 January 2023.

Finally, a jury made up of 6 renowned professionals, chosen based on the full diversity of techniques and styles, but focusing on the world of design, will select the 3 winners

The key date? That will be 16 January, when we announce the winners of the first edition of our International Design Contest.
