Hi Toilet

Public toilet

Covid-19 taught us that we need to be more sensitive to personal hygiene than ever before. But what about public restrooms? Hi Toilet is the world's first contactless toilet, born in July 2021 out of Tokyo's campaign to reimagine public restrooms. This is a voice-activated toilet experience that is 100% hands-free. This toilet is designed to be universally accessible, physically appealing, and interactive. The final design is the result of several phases of trial and error.

iF GOLD STATEMENT

This is a great example of how design and technology can respond to current challenges. The recent Covid-19 pandemic sensitized people to the need for contactless surfaces. This public lavatory design is both sophisticated and user-friendly, balancing aesthetics, accessibility, and hygiene. It has the appearance of a public art object, with an inviting allure untypical of public restrooms.
