2016 is the year for considered design!  And what exactly does this mean…

It is important to Cobra to encourage innovative design but we need to remain mindful at all times of real world challenges, in particular with respect to public bathroom spaces. While last year’s brief was fun, free and open for interpretation, this year we want to inspire considered designs, which means we will be looking for first class innovation combined with practicality and solutions to inspire and accommodate real world situations. For example: the public shower space could be more than just a vandal resistant shower. Since we are in a drought stricken country it would benefit us all if water saving is incorporated into all design. We would like to wish all our participants the very best with their creations, as we expect this year’s Cobra PDC to be nothing short of explosively dynamic.
