2nd prize - 1.000 Euro

A stone-cast washbasin, a trolley and a partition create the basic luvare module for the care of the elderly at home. It is used for moderate, serious or complicated cases of geriatric care and delivers functionality in line with the respective situation. Whether it is used as a compact wash table for mobile, elderly persons, or a nursing station that can be used for tending to a sick patient — the washing table has a vertical adjustment range of 12 cm and lets wheelchair users drive under it and operate the extendible tap unit.
