OLD LOOS GET THE FLUSH
MODERN STYLES MORE SPACE EFFICIENT AND HYGIENIC
THERE has been a revolution in toilet design – the bulky cisterns and pans of traditional toilets have been replaced by sleek, minimalist pieces.
At the ISH 2015 bathroom fair in Frankfurt, Germany, bathroom specialist Roca displayed two designs that it says will change the bathroom landscape.
The Meridian In-Tank and The Gap Rimless are among the most exciting toilet advancements in years, according to Daniela Santilli of Reece, stockist for Roca in Australia.
“This year’s ISH bathroom fair brought toilets to the forefront of conversation in both the international and local design community, redefining the bathroom space,’’ Santilli says. “With bathrooms getting smaller, the need to be smarter with how we conserve space is crucial.”
Santilli says the Meridian In-Tank is perfect for bathrooms with limited space. “(It) integrates the cistern and button seamlessly into the pan itself,” she says. “Eliminating the need to install the cistern and but- ton into the wall, the Meridian In-Tank uses Soft Air Technology to push water from the in-built cistern into the pan for an effective flush.”
Hygiene is a huge consideration for the bathroom, Santilli says, especially when the whole family is using the space.
Flushing from a single point, The Gap Rimless is designed as a continuous surface, free of edged angles, grooves or gaps. The design allows water to circulate along the inner perimeter of the pan, flowing smoothly from the upper perimeter, moving in a circular motion towards the lower outlet.
Dirt is quickly removed rather than accumulating in grooves or gaps, achieving better cleaning and improved hygiene.
