A number of aspects combined to convince the panel of judges at the renowned iF Design Award to honour TOTO in 2021: the ergonomic, relaxation-promoting design of the round and square Flotation tub, and the coordinating designs of this tub and the vessels in the CE collection. According to iF, these give the bath “an elegant ambience.”
Each year, more and more designers compete in the international iF Design Awards. Organisers called 2021 a “record year”, with nearly 10,000 registered products and projects to evaluate. The growing international competition makes it increasingly challenging to be successful. Yet TOTO managed to do just that in 2021’s competition, standing out in the “Product” category. The 98 design experts on the judges’ panel honoured the extensive development work and testing behind the two different versions of the beautifully designed Flotation tub.
TOTO developed its RECLINE COMFORT technology to create an extremely relaxing experience: The inside shape of the bathtub allows the bather’s body to assume the ideal posture for relaxation – with the shoulders and head in the perfect position to eliminate any strain, as well an ergonomic headrest to gently cradle the head.
The bathtub encourages the natural S-curve of the spine from the neck to the lumbar vertebrae, promoting deep relaxation, tranquillity and a feeling of lightness.
The CE collection features round or square vessels that coordinate perfectly with each tub design. They are made of multilayer matte white composite material – a long-lasting, durable and great-looking choice. According to iF, the two vessel styles do more than just improve the look and feel of the bathroom environment: “The shape of the vessel makes handwashing comfortable and prevents spray,” the experts explained.
TOTO is proud of this year’s iF Design Award results and sees them as a confirmation of their mindset. According to the company: “Innovative technologies and materials are just as unique as the design: They exist for the sole purpose of providing outstanding comfort.”
