If you’ve always associated stainless steel toilet pans with rail station toilets and prisons, trust those design savvy Italians to turn preconception on its head. Luxury sanitaryware manufacturer CEA has created what seems the Bang & Olufsen for toilets with its ABACO modular system designed by Natalino Malasorti. Its modular nature provides mix and match flexibility and easy installation in a design that’s both hygienic and durable. If you’re wondering where the loo is here, it’s on the far right, beneath a lid, like a 21st century commode. This is the bathroom in a future Hollywood celebrity prison. They should do Cribs episode on it.
