What is ist?

piPE is a sanitary object especially designed for ladies' toilets in semi-public areas. It is designed as a unit for installation in standardized single cabins.

What is the Topic?

piPE is a potential answer to the question "how could public toilet visits be made more pleasant for women?" and thus the reopening of an exciting debate.

Why does it look like this?

The strategy of draining sink water through the toilet tube avoids unnecessary flushing. If more than a tiny amount of urine is left behind after use, integrated nozzles ensure a complete removal. The color should draw attention to a taboo subject.

What is special?

piPE gives the option to be used in a contactless way. Both the faucet, as well as the flushing are sensor-controlled. In addition, the WC part with the thin edge and the slight inclination can be used optimally in the contactless “skiing posture“.

What is new?

The completely non-contact toilet use and washing hands in the toilet single cabin are possible.
