Right from the Five-Star gilded service to behind the bushes; I’ve used many kinda bathrooms in my life. And the two things that contribute towards making an impressionable one are ambiance and cleanliness. At home, you would want to create a bathroom that’s functional yet chic. Easy to maintain (ugh lime scales) yet classy. One such bathroom design that fits the bill is the Wavflow concept. Clean and uncluttered, the soft waves-like finishing creates a rejuvenating atmosphere.

Video killed the radio star, but I think digital players did more damage. Call me old fashioned if you like, but I still prefer the randomness of a radio station, you can never really know which song they will play next. The Muji Bath Radio by Industrial Facility is perfect for eccentrics like me and to top it off, it serenades as a shampoo bottle! The controls are at the bottom and the top twists left or right as volume adjustment. Me really wants this…but fret… its available only in Japan.
The Water Symphony Faucet is probably best for public toilets than homes coz hygiene is more of a concern in such loos. The idea is to have a faucet that is intuitive enough for you not to touch it (uggh-the bacteria!) to operate. Sensors around the mixer make it function automatically when a hand comes within range and features like water pressure and heating are adjusted via a unit installed under the sink. The tap includes a mic and an OLED screen that displays the water pressure, temperature and water consumed per wash.

No need to be mean now! It’s not insane to collect one’s tears, is it? No way! How about droplets of nose-liquid, sweat, urine, and stomach contents? It is this collection of body contents that the project called “Native Commodities” aims to measure. It aims to test the limits. The limits of “sharing, manufacturing, and interacting with biological data from our bodies.” HOOARF – barfing included. Three spittoon-type objects made for capturing disgusting data.

Oh my goodness dirty title! But really, this bathroom (including the bath) is quite touchy. Step in the shower and your temperature water will fall on your head, and not everywhere, just the place where your body occupies. Additional controls are lit up in wall tiles. Also included is an inverse (or rather, convex sink) which also recycles water for later use in the toilet.

The simplest lockdown. The perfect form. What kind of minimalism are you into? I’m listening to one of the music mixtapes released in honor of Michael Jackson: this one has a vocals-only track of “Rock with You.” Perfect, wonderful, simple. In the clock you see here, we’ve got a companion in time. The colored circle, the giant nail marking the 12 and holding the clock to the wall, and the two hands of father time. Ow!

Being fussy while using a public loo is quite justifiable coz your personal hygiene is at stake. The “Ultimate Clean Toilet” here is quite a unique concept that addresses the issue of hygiene and practicality. It’s a turn-around concept, where one side features a urinal and the other a sit-down commode. You can swivel-around this two-way design system with the flick of a button. It self-sanitizes using Steam and UV. I reckon it would be the ideal solution for Public Toilets, but its groovy style qualifies it for the rich-and-famous loos!

It goes in the sink, then it goes in the toilet. What’s that? It’s your water bill! You’ve got to conserve in any way you can. Here’s a lovely simple system that makes use of the fact that toilet water never needs to be as clean as it usually is. The “Eco Bath” concept uses 50% reused water and 50% new water for a toilet system half-ways to nature friendly.

Oh yes, showers indeed. Apparently when you’re at the public shower, you put your money in the slot, and you get a limited amount of water, just like air at the air pump. If you use the public shower a lot, no prob! But if you don’t, you don’t know how much water you’re gonna get. So check it out. The “Interactive Shower System” has a little pixel hourglass to tell you how much water you’ve got left to get clean. In the public shower.
So you need a glass of water to drink. Yes? Would you like to know how much H2O you’re WASTING when you take that cold refreshment from the vein of the earth itself? Well now you can! You can know basically exactly how much water goes through your pipe before your bill-person does! The “Bware-Water” is cute, has a little number display, and is so easy to instal, a child could do it.

You aren’t dreaming! And this isn’t Waterworld! You know what I’m talking about, Kevin Costner. This is a device for emergency areas / unclean-water areas for yes, you guessed it, turning urine into drinkable water. Human or animal. First, pee on the Activated Carbon in the device to make the pee lose it’s color and it’s flavor. Second, squeeze the container, third, drink!
