The "Automatic Cleaning Toilet A-La-Uno" was released in 2006 as the  rst toilet to be made from resin with an automatic self-cleansing function. We have now devel-oped and adopted an organic-glass-based new material that keeps from staining and is easier to clean. Issues belonging the common porcelain toilet, such as gaps between the toilet’s different components, are solved by the use of resin, with its ability to be molded extremely precisely. Using this material enabled us to integrate the shapes of the toilet bowl and the electronic bidet, to shape the inside of the bowl without a back rim, and to create a simple oval shaped lid that you can clean in a single wipe. Cleanliness has been dramatically improved with automatic foam cleansing. The rectangular seat with rounded corners improves the toilet’s comfort. The improved shape of the bowl also re nes the splash-guard for urine. Inheriting the design philosophy of its  rst generation, “S II” is an econo- mical product that allows for easy distribution.

This is a beautiful faucet, which uni es form and function in an elegant design. The thin waterspout made by carefully processing the stainless steel lends the faucet the appearance of an abstract sculpture, with well-placed horizontal and vertical lines. Beyond the faucet’s practical highlights, the running water has a be- autiful waterfall effect. It is an excellent design that realizes a rich emotional as- pect.(Selection Committee / HASEGAWA Satoru)
