TOTO once again emerged victorious among international competitors, recently receiving multiple awards: the renowned iF Design Award 2020 in the “Product” category, as well as the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020. The iF Design Award winners were for WASHLET™ models RW/SW and WASHLET™ SX with the SP toilet. TOTO also won the venerable Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020 for its freestanding Flotation Tub.
With 7,298 submissions from 56 countries, there were more participants in this year’s iF Design Award than ever before. The panel of judges was also large enough to handle this massive volume, consisting of 78 design experts. A total of 40 judges also evaluated over 6,500 submissions for the Red Dot Award: Product Design. TOTO is especially thrilled that the streamlined RW and angular SW models – both Prime Edition – received the iF Design Award 2020. The two WASHLET™ represent a milestone for the Japanese company, as they unite all proven hygiene features in one product at an attractive price. The experts praised the very comfortable seat, the high standards of hygiene offered by the environmentally compatible self-cleaning function with electrolysed water (EWATER+), as well as the easy, clean installation with any visible connections. They also found the opportunity to choose between curved and angular options to be very positive. WASHLET™ SW will available for purchase in May 2020. The iF Design Award judges were also impressed by the streamlined, angular SP toilet and equally stunning WASHLET™ SX: The simple, minimalistic design, the especially smooth, durable special CEFIONTECT glaze, and the EWATER+ function on WASHLET™ SX were some of the factors that inspired judges to give these models the award. They also emphasised the proven TORNADO FLUSH, which propels water from wand jets, creating a powerful whirlpool that effectively cleans every inch of the toilet bowl. The freestanding Flotation Tub received the
Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020,
featuring TOTO’s new Zero Dimension technology. The inside of the tub is shaped to give the bather the ideal position for relaxation, supporting the shoulders and head in a relaxed posture. The natural S-shaped curve of the spine is maintained from the neck to the lumbar spine, bringing about deep relaxation, an all-encompassing feeling of lightness and peace. The panel of judges seemed delighted by this product development from Japan. Before the award ceremony, the Red Dot Award: Product Design expert judges hoped to see “cultural diversity as well as different approaches to solve everyday problems.” This is the sixth year in a row that TOTO products have received iF Design Awards, and the eighth time for the Red Dot Award: Product Design: “This is a clear signal to our customers that we always strive to deliver the highest levels of hygiene with an appealing design,” commented Hubertus Brüggemann, Germany Sales Director at TOTO Europe GmbH.
