2014 Red Dot Award:TOTO a two-time “Winner”
TOTO received two honours in the “Winner” category at the 2014 Red Dot Awards. The panel of expert judges recognised the Japanese bathroom manufacturer’s overhead and hand shower units.
The international panel of 40 judges named the overhead shower (600 x 530 millimetres) one of the “Winners”. The reason for their decision: “The ingenious design makes this overhead shower a relaxing wellness experience.”
The panel had a similar justification for recognising the TOTO hand shower in the “Winner” category as well: “A shower involves more than just getting clean. This hand shower creates a very relaxing experience, thanks in part to its impressive, lovely design.”
From cleansing to a shower experience
The winning TOTO overhead and hand showers have a variety of different spray types:
• Water Pillar: A heavy, smooth stream of water envelopes the entire body, keeping it comfortable and warm.
• Cascade Flow: The water flows out of the shower head like a waterfall, evenly covering the entire body. Aerial Shower: The shower head takes in air and adds it to the water, making the drops larger. This creates the feeling of a very full stream of water while reducing water consumption.
• Gyrostream: The water from the rotating jets massages and invigorates the body. This pioneering technology turns regular every cleansing into “a very relaxing shower experience” (judges).
