Flow / Gender-Friendly Toilet


We found that there is a main problem in existing gender-friendly toilets, feeling uncomfortable. There are many people felt that using gender-friendly toilets was an awkward experience because they feel "watched" and "heard".
The core idea of our design is to improve this phenomena. The one-way traffic flow design with the infrared sensing technology allows users to use it with peace of mind, and the setting of the water curtain can effectively cover the toilet sound.
We hope that no matter what physical gender, psychological gender and sexual orientation they are, everyone could have a comfortable toilet experience here.
