The Davidson Prize


Thanks to the generous support of VitrA Bathrooms, the judging sessions for the 2022 Davidson Prize are hosted at the VitrA London Design Hub on Turnmill Street, Clerkenwell.

Conceived as a place where different design disciplines can connect in creative discourse, VitrA London is an eminently fitting place for the multidisciplinary jury to come together to judge a prize designed to promote collaborative ways of working and positive solutions for society.

VitrA is a global innovator in bathroom design and technology, collaborating with leading designers from around the world on new ideas and collections. The company’s own collaborations are incubated at its Innovation Centre near Istanbul in Turkey, a state-of-the art facility encompassing research in nanotechnology, electronics, water and energy, sensor technology, acoustics, ergonomics and composite materials. It’s here that acclaimed designers such as Tom Dixon, Arik Levy and Terri Pecora are introduced to specialist technologists and researchers to work on exciting collaborations guided by an expert in-house design team.

Opened in 2021, VitrA London expands over two levels of the award-winning Turnmill Building next to Farringdon Station, offering a Virtual Reality space for immersive engagement with design concepts, a Talks and Exhibitions space, Materials Lab and design reference library alongside a range of settings for group and collaborative work.

VitrA is part of the Eczacıbaşı Group, originating from Süleyman Ferit Eczacıbaşı’s pharmacy in Izmir in 1909 and emerging with the formation of modern-day Turkey. Today the Group is committed to sustainable and socially responsible business, aiming to achieve balance between the needs of society and the sustainability of the world’s natural resources.
