Glass Toilet Cubicles

Swiss Public Bathrooms

— March 26, 2008 — Unique
Apparently they don't get pee fright in Switzerland... or if they do, then this public toilet must stay really clean because most people wouldn't actually be able to use it! It's made one-way reflective glass. Even though you can see them and they can't see you, I couldn't do it. I'd never be able to pee with people walking by.

Implications - Since urban consumers are spending less time at home, and more time on-the-go or at work, public spaces, including bathrooms, are being transformed by architecture and design. This reflects the overall theme in which cities wish to set themselves apart in order to attract media attention and tourism opportunities.
Trend Themes
1. Innovative Public Restroom Design - The use of glass toilet cubicles in public restrooms presents an opportunity to explore creative and unconventional restroom design.
2. Enhancing User Privacy in Public Spaces - One-way reflective glass in public restrooms is a trend that supports the push to provide enhanced privacy for users in public spaces.
3. Modernizing Public Restrooms Using High-end Materials - Using high-end materials such as glass in public restrooms presents an opportunity to add a touch of luxury and modernity to often-overlooked spaces.
Industry Implications
1. Architecture and Design - The trend towards innovative and unconventional public restroom design presents an opportunity for architects and designers to showcase their creativity.
2. Facilities Management - The implementation of modern and high-end materials in public restrooms requires skilled facilities management and presents an opportunity for improvements in this area.
3. Tourism and Hospitality - The use of unique and high-end materials in public restrooms, such as the one-way reflective glass used in Swiss public bathrooms, presents an opportunity for tourism and hospitality businesses to set themselves apart with memorable experiences.
