Head to TOTO during Clerkenwell Design Week (22-24 May 2018) to get the lowdown on clean toilet technology and bathing rituals for wellness. Pioneers in sanitaryware for over a century, TOTO has revolutionised the bathroom, blending ancient Japanese bathing traditions with high-tech innovations, and creating its world-leading Washlet shower-toilets, spa showers, flotation bath tubs and more.
Famous for its advanced and hygienic warm water cleansing system, over 40 million TOTO Washlets have been sold worldwide, spanning a vast array of international projects. In addition to an exhibition displaying a selection of bathroom schemes featuring these shower-toilets, a TOTO, Talks Programme will be held at the Clerkenwell showroom.
Tuesday 22nd May from 12-12.45pm: Esteemed architects David Morley (DMA) and Ana Monrabal (Roz Barr Architects) will discuss details of their own TOTO projects with leading architectural journalist Clare Dowdy. The DMA project includes a reAqua unit – a grey water recycling system which reduces water consumption by up to 30% – specified to actively collect and recycle used shower water from the first-floor bathroom to flush two TOTO MH wall-hung WCs on the ground floor, while the Roz Barr project consists of multiple cubicle bathrooms created as an active product display for those interested in the built environment, within The Building Centre.
