Nautilus / Urinal design concept

Nautilus
Nautilus

The Nautilus is a new type of urinal inspired by the shape of a nautilus, whose function is realized by allowing urine to flow along the inner wall of the urinal. The working principle of the Nautilus mimics the fluid that flows in a nautilus when it moves in the sea, and it is the perfect solution to the splash issue commonly seen in current urinals. The flushing water flow will automatically spray inward toward the inner wall of the Nautilus and covers over 90% of the inner part of the urinal, reducing the frequency of manual washing and saving cleaning time as well as costs. It is the best solution to the problems that current urinals have
