  • The photo shows a modern bathroom with a free-standing bath, a floor-level shower behind a marbled wall with an arched opening, a washbasin island and a wall-mounted toilet. The room is warmly lit, with indirect light on the ceiling and a floor lamp, and contains a seating area with a designer chair, creating a homely atmosphere.
  • The picture shows a luxurious bathroom at dusk with large panoramic windows offering a view of bare trees and the evening sky. A wall-hung toilet can be seen in the foreground, next to a natural stone washbasin and a free-standing bathtub; a log fire adds to the cozy atmosphere.
  • The image shows a modern, brushed metal push plate for a two-button toilet, mounted on a wall with an eye-catching marble look. The plate bears the TOTO logo and its simple design stands out clearly from the vividly patterned wall in the background.
  • The picture shows a modern, closed, wall-hung toilet in white on an isolated background.
  • The photo shows a modern toilet with the lid open, revealing the innovative technology inside the lid. The toilet is set against a uniformly light background, which draws attention to the design and functionality of the sanitary product.
  • The image shows a sleek, modern metal control unit with various buttons and symbols for controlling the functions of a toilet, such as water jet intensity and seat heating, as well as the TOTO logo. The controls are clearly arranged and the labels indicate intuitive handling.
  • The picture shows a smiling man in a light blue shirt and dark trousers standing by a railing in a modern office building with a glass façade, with other buildings and green spaces visible in the background.

NEOREST WX users can experience the next level of Japanese wellness every time they use the toilet – thanks to TOTO. There are two identical-looking versions of the high-end toilet with integrated WASHLET: NEOREST WX1 and NEOREST WX2. Every principle in TOTO’s design philosophy is reflected in NEOREST WX’s harmonious, understated form and comfortable size. A new ceramic material is used for the first time, allowing for finer, more elegant lines. These detailed enhancements are what make these quiet moments in the bathroom a perfect break from everyday life.


Perfection is part of how people live in Japan. It’s an expression of respect for others – reflected in a beautifully choreographed tea ceremony, for example. It’s also present in industry, in which “Kaizen” is exemplified as a working philosophy and a methodological concept. At its core is a continuous striving for improvement, optimisation and perfection.


Japanese bathroom producer TOTO is committed to this tradition of striving for perfection. NEOREST WX represents a pinnacle in TOTO’s collection – with optimised technology and design, including the use of a new ceramic material. “This new material prevents the ceramic from warping as much during the firing process,” explains Kohei Tsuji, Director Product Management TOTO Europe. This gives the design even finer, more elegant lines.


NEOREST WX is the manifestation of TOTO’s design philosophy. It incorporates three essential aspects that the Japanese company describes as “gentle and safe in everyday life”, “long-lasting aesthetics” and “in harmony with the space”. The goal is to create a perfect, yet unassuming product that becomes an indispensable part of everyday life – a “pleasant interaction between a person and object,” explains Kohei Tsuji. NEOREST WX has already been named the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2023 “Winner”, and also received the iF Design Award 2023.


TOTO products have an understated, timeless design that hides the sophisticated technology that lies beneath. This is especially the case with the two new NEOREST WX models, which include all cleansing and hygiene technologies from the latest WASHLET generation.


NEOREST WX – the culmination of all hygiene and comfort technologies

NEOREST WX features the EWATER+ technology developed by TOTO, which makes a major difference when it comes to hygiene: The wand jet used for intimate cleansing automatically cleans itself inside and out with electrolysed water – before and after use, but also regularly when in standby. This reduces bacterial formation and ensures hygienic conditions at all times. The ceramic bowl is sprayed with EWATER+ after each use to guarantee the greatest possible hygiene. Both NEOREST models look the same when the lid is closed, but NEOREST WX2 also comes with Actilight. This technology uses a photocatalytic process to break down any waste and dirt that accumulates.


Other features for total well-being in the bath

Touch-free products aren’t just more comfortable. They’re also more hygienic, and easier for people of all generations to use – from small children to people with physical limitations. The smart toilet has a lid that raises and closes automatically, as well as an automatic flush. NEOREST WX is “intelligent” enough to activate either the large or small flush based on the time spent sitting. It’s possible to create four user profiles to save individual preferences, such as the warm water spray types, seat temperature and much more. The remote control makes it easy to use the various features, available in four languages: English, German, French and Italian. A soft LED light below the ceramic makes NEOREST WX visible in the dark.


TOTO introduced NEOREST WX at ISH 2023. Hubertus Brüggemann, Sales Director, TOTO Europe, is thrilled about this latest addition to TOTO’s portfolio: "NEOREST WX is the culmination of 40 years of experience and expertise in producing WASHLET and 60 million units sold world-wide. User-friendly and offering exceptional design, comfort and hygiene, it’s really the perfect product. NEOREST WX is an absolute highlight for any high-end bathroom."
