Bathroom Convergence

You’ve heard of “convergence” in gadgets, now we have the humble toilet (uncomfortably) converging with the hand basin! All in the spirit of saving precious water. A good thing, I hear you say. Well, it definitely is a good thing unless the environmental objective conflicts with a basic functional requirement.

Witness the “Profile™ 5” toilet suite from Caroma.

Caroma Profile™ 5 Toilet Suite

Let’s check the specs:

  • Saves water, tick
  • Affordable, tick
  • Proven performance, tick
  • Ergonomic design, umm… no.

This is where all Caroma’s claims come unstuck. Really, who wants to straddle a toilet bowl to wash their hands in something that ugly?
