Nature = Nitrogen / Funnel-shaped urinal

Nature = Nitrogen
Nature = Nitrogen

To improve the way on how we perceive the subject of excreta, let's start from a scientific perspective on the biological facts on how humans excrete waste.

the metaphor comes from a chinese saying "fertilizer goes in the owner's field", which emphasizes the beneficial nitrogenous properties for the plants, contributing to the benefit of humanity

After going through the appropriate treatments and dilution, the excreta now returns to mother nature as a beneficial resource, earning it the title of "beneficence design"
