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.
