Tlalock

Reusable water toilet

The name is inspired in the rain Aztec god: Tlaloc. This concept aesthetically integrates two of the three main elements of a bathroom, resulting in a better usage of the water required for the operation. Ariel Rojo Design Studio turned around the use of an existent paradigm placing the washbasin on top of the water tank and facing it against the toilet sit. With this innovation the water used for washing your hands is the same that will be used when pulling the toilet?s level, saving up to 83% of the water used for the regular operation.
The design and degree of inclination of Tlalock also allows architects and designers to rethink the way bathrooms are currently layout, as all the hydraulic installations can arrive only from the floor. The constant pain about cleaning behind the toilet is gone, as the whole area around it has easy access. Tlalock patent is proceeding and looking for a producer to accept the challenge.
