PLUS WASH STATION

This unique concept of washstand / toilet combination was designed by Bora Cakilkaya of Turkish design studio P-arch.  The fixture station focuses on the preservation of water.  The so-called gray water draining from the wash stand is stored in a tank below and, after a purification process, is utilized for flushing the toilet.  Another interesting aspect of the design is the idea of disconnecting of the washbasin and toilet from the wall and instead setting them in the center of the space.

The design won the 2nd place in the Green Dot Awards in 2009.  Found via Design Milk.

WALL HUNG TOILETS (AND BIDETS)

We at Uniform have a high regard for wall mounted toilets (and bidets).  They not only look good, take up less space than floor mounted fixtures but are also easier to maintain.  The tank can be usually hidden in the wall and will mostly likely have a dual flush system that saves water.  The floor below the fixture can be thoroughly cleaned without much hassle.  And did I mention that they look good?
