The Roca W + W (wash basin + water closet) is as eco-friendly as it is good looking. Designed by the Roca Innovation Lab and Italian architects Gabriele and Oscar Buratti, the W+W fuses a washbasin and lavatory into a single piece and applies new Roca “Reusing Water” technology. This new technology reduces water consumption by 25% when compared with standard dual-flush toilets by re-using water from the washbasin to fill the lavatory cistern. It also employs for the first-time an automatic cleansing system which prevents bacteria and odors from entering the water cistern.

toilet snorkel

In most fires, it’s the smoke that will get you, and a source of fresh air can be a life saver.  So our inventor designed a way to snake a snorkel through the zigs and zags of your toilet, so you can breath sewer air instead of smoke. Off course you can wander if he couldn’t just as easily invented the Faucet snorkel instead?
