Up & Down / toilet

Up & Down
Up & Down

Up and Down is a toilet with the function of raising/lowering the toilet seat for different purposes. When the feet of the user face the toilet, the toilet seat goes up and it goes down when the feet face the opposite direction to the toilet. The foot-stand located at the bottom of the toilet recognizes the changes in the shape of feet according to direction to automatically raise/lower the toilet seat. This alleviates the inconvenience of having to raise/lower the toilet seat with hand. Accordingly, the users of different gender can use the toilet in a sanitary way as well as keep the restroom etiquette.
