Ayko / Squat Toilet


At many public lavatories, one can't find satisfactorily hygienic and ergonomic conditions. Thus, many people try to avoid direct contact with the toilet. At this, the crouch-standing-position can be helpful. The heightened and thinned shape of my toilets supports this posture in the best way. The user can easily stand above the toilet without touching it. A Sensor Flush System is located at the back of the seating area, which is activated after leaving the toilet cubicle. This facilitates the free positioning of the toilet in the room and gives a lot of leeweay to design comfort-stations
