Nouveau Toilette

Public and personal toilets are influenced by design, imagination & eco
Implications - Although public washrooms haven’t seen a tremendous amount of innovation over the years, they are now evolving. Finding ways to reinvent a traditional category opens the door to greater market opportunity. Some washrooms are being redesigned to appeal to a more global market, like the westernization of public restrooms in Beijing; others are turned into bizarre experiences such as washrooms with artistic urinals. Some even cater to niche markets like overweight demographics, environmentally conscious consumers or pet owners.
