Door Handle With Self-Sterilization System

One of the dirtiest parts of a bathroom is the door handle because everyone touches it. Wash your hands, and then ensure they stay clean, or ensure you don’t pick up too many germs on your way in or out of the bathroom. The self-sterilizing door handle from Yanko Design uses a UV light to kill any germs living on the handle. The light stays on when the door is shut, and when you push the handle down to open the door, the lamp shuts off. Read more .

One Liter Limited Faucet

The One Liter Limited Faucet helps you use only the water you truly need. Its design looks similar to a test tube, with the tube holding one liter of water, which is the sufficient amount for a handwash. Bathroom users waste about six times that typically when washing their hands, while they only actually USE one liter. Once you use the one liter of water, you must turn off the faucet until the tube fills up again. Read more .

Tulip Bath/Shower

Small bathroom owners struggle with finding space saving products. But the Tulip Bath/Shower is about as compact as you can get for a shower/bath combo. Its pod structure opens up just like a flower. In its upright position the bathroom fixture operates as a shower, preventing splashing and containing steam. When open, the vertical piece offers a place to lean against. It even offers a few frills, including hydromassage and whirlpool functions. There’s little info currently available about the Tulip, besides that it’s in conception. Read more .

Kohler’s Numi Toilet

Kohler’s Numi toilet was created with a compact, modern design. But the coolness factor of this toilet doesn’t end there. It has a motion-activated seat/lid, a bidet with multiple options for the water pressure/temperature PLUS an integrated air dryer, illuminated panels, a deodorizing charcoal filter and a foot warmer. As well, you can play music on the toilet’s built-in speakers. Read more .

Oras Eterna Smart Shower

The Oras Eterna Smart Shower is designed to facilitate water conservation. An integrated thermostat allows you to precisely adjust the water temperature. But the most effective feature is the EcoLed signal light: a green light means you showered within two minutes, while a red light warns you that you’ve exceeded your ecological time limit.
