Roca’s innovative, ultra-modern toilet and sink combination, called W+W (for washbasin + watercloset), recently won the ISH 09 Design Plus Award in Frankfurt. This unique, space-saving bathroom fixture is not only sleek and elegant, but also environmentally friendly.

Designed by Buratti + Battiston Architects, the W+W helps to conserve resources by re-using water from the sink to fill the toilet. This saves approximately 25% in water consumption.

The fixture also has an automatic cleaning system that prevents bacteria build-up in the toilet if there is a long delay between flushes.

In addition, the unit’s compact size enables it to fit in very small bathrooms.

All these features, plus the unusually attractive design, make this one cool toilet... or sink, or toilet-sink… Stats for Sink-Toilet Combinations Trending: Older & Warm
