The plain, linear design of the urinal can adapt to different conditions in public toilets. Its slim edges and gently curved surfaces blend seamlessly together to ensure easy and quick cleaning. The oval-shaped basin is exceptionally compact. Compared with conventional Japanese models, the surface to be cleaned has been reduced by a third, thus reducing the cleaning time required by 30 per cent.
Statement by the Jury
The urinal impresses with a compact, coherent appearance that is functionally well thought-out and meets high demands on both operating comfort and hygiene.
