Dubai students compete for eco-friendly bathroom designs

In an innovative contest, 23 AUD students compete to promote sustainable bathroom designs
Delta Faucet Company Middle East, a worldwide leader in commercial and residential faucets, held a contest among students of the American University of Dubai (AUD) to come up with sustainable bathroom designs.
Of the 23 students who participated three – Anne Wagdi El Meri, Mahy Hussein and Erum Kamal – were declared winners in the first, second and third place respectively. They provided aesthetically planned, yet innovative and sustainable bathroom designs with several conservation features.
“There are always ways to be cost effective and sustainable at the same time,” Anne Wagdi El Meri
“My project is meant to make users psychologically aware of the idea of sustainability without taking away from the visual appeal of the design,” Erum Kamal
“I truly believe that the more people are aware of the impact we have, the more it becomes a norm to act within the framework of Eco-consciousness<” Mahy Hussein ”
There is much more to bathroom and faucet designs than just gleaming looks and pretty contours. In today’s eco-conservative times, while form takes its pride of place, function is equally important. So the question put to the students of the American University of Dubai for the contest in sustainable bathrooms was: ‘Is your bathroom designed for optimal sustainability?’
This was one of the most important idea behind the launching of a contest by Delta Faucet Company, a worldwide leader in residential and commercial faucets.
