We found not one, but 30 weird and wonderful solutions, including ecologically friendly ideas, integrated systems and cunningly concealed designs.

A disappearing sanitary ware design has been made possible by topping the washbasin, toilet bowl and shower tray with solid larch wood covers. The WC volume also incorporates a small storage drawer to the side.

Here is a concept that combines the sink with the toilet. but rather than for the sake of aesthetics it does this for the very important purpose of conserving water.
