Almost Genius: A Toilet That Disappear From View

26 Aug
With One, a line of disappearing sinks, showers, and toilets, Rapsel tries to flush away all signs of scatological indelicacy.

Ah, the bathroom. That crude reminder that humans are but savage animals with putrid, squalid needs. Polite society likes to pretend that it doesn’t exist — that fluffy toilet lids and endless varieties of magnolia-scented air freshener can will our filth away. Here to take our collective shame to whole new levels of self-denial is Rapsel, an Italian company, which designs toilet fixtures that magically disappear.

Rapsel’s One line includes a sink, shower, and toilet disguised behind sleek wooden slats. Step into the bathroom, and the slats resemble shelves and benches in a swanky little sauna. It’s only when you lift them up that their true function is revealed. “The new ‘invisible’ bathroom, designed by Matteo Thun for RAPSEL, impresses with few lines and innovative forms,” the press release effuses. “[They] become geometric modules that function as sculptural shelves.”
