When compiling a list of must-see places to visit before you die, toilets are unlikely to be too near the top. But when you consider that the average person will spend three years on the toilet over the course of their lifetime, it makes sense to do so in style on at least a few occasions.
Helpfully, a popular US home interest magazine, California Home & Design has put together a bucket list of ‘places to pee before you die’. And with Geberit’s commitment to ensuring comfort and style in the washroom and bathroom, it’s not surprising that one of its most prestigious installations features on the list.
It may be hidden behind the wall, but Geberit’s Duofix framing system plays a crucial part of the design of the public convenience in The Shard, from where visitors can take in the breathtaking views across London.
Situated on the 68th floor of the £2billion development, the washrooms in the public area of West Europe’s tallest building are luxuriously fitted, with Geberit’s Duofix framing system providing a secure fit for the wall-hung WC and Geberit’s Sigma50 dual flush plate providing the perfect finishing touch. The flush plate, finished in high quality stainless steel, is the only visible fixture aside from the wall-hung sanitaryware itself, and its stylish, minimal design fits seamlessly into the space without compromising on the 40-mile views of the UK’s Capital from the full-length window that sits alongside the WC.
Other top contenders on the bucket list of 50 of the world’s top toilets include the bulletproof bathroom in Beijing, the ladies washrooms on the sixth floor of Macy’s in San Francisco, the one-way glass toilet in Texas, the luxurious Vice Versa hotel in Paris and Seoul’s Ice Gallery bathroom, with a toilet cast from solid ice.
