Catchment Wall / Bathroom Wall

Catchment Wall
Catchment Wall



When we take a shower, we always use showerheads. Some of the water will be wasted by flowing to the floor or spraying onto the wall. With Catchment Wall, bathroom walls will be fitted with a second level featuring a hexagonal structure and pipes. The waste water runs down the sloped wall and is collected in a pipe. It can then be used to flush the toilet, thus reducing the amount of water we use.

Resource and environment protection is an important topic. Many designs solve related problems in a complex way, using some special products. This design, however, simply integrates a decorative wall to create a good user experience. A good, integrated design.

Thank you to iF International Forum Design for giving us this opportunity to exchange experience with other winners. You inspire us!
