Features of Award Winning Products
NEOREST DH, Integrated toilet
NEOREST DH comes with many features and functions and yet has an understated, simple low-profile design. The design makes dimensional adjustments at the 0.1 mm level in order to pack many functional components into the smallest of spaces.
NEOREST DH is also exceptionally easy to clean thanks to its extraordinarily smooth surface and the elimination of microscopic gaps.

WASHLET*2 Instant-type [for overseas market]
WASHLET [for overseas market] comes equipped with many functions including warm water spray, heated seat, dryer and deodorizer, whilst maintaining a neat, understated low profile design.
WASHLET is even more compact thanks to a design that makes dimensional adjustments at the 0.1 mm level in order to pack many functional components into the smallest of spaces.
Incorporating TOTO’s unique sensors that can see through resin, the WASHLET has body motion sensors concealed inside the toilet seat, removing the need for a sensor window and creating a more streamlined design.

TA Series Vessel Wash Basin
With a statement organic shape inspired by nature, the TA Series Vessel Wash Basin has a bold asymmetrical design, adding an extra twist to a relaxing and comfortable bathroom experience. TOTO’s proprietary ceramic material is used to create a vessel of exquisite thinness with crisp sharp lines.
The TA Series Wash Basin is also available in a CLEAN MATTE finish, which creates a no slip surface that gives off a gentle silky light unlike ordinary gloss ceramics. This CLEAN MATTE finish also prevents the adhesion of dirt and ensures easy cleaning, while at the same time improving design.

Single lever mixer faucet with basin, GF Series
Based on the design concept “Fine,” the Single lever mixer faucet with basin, GF Series incorporates a cylindrical faucet body, offering an exquisitely smooth and simple design.

FLOATATION TUB Free Standing Bathtub
FLOATATION TUB offers a sense of luxury through its powerful design and exquisite relaxation through a new style of bathing.
With a perfectly smooth surface inside and a hand-polished coating on its curved uninterrupted exterior, the flotation tub creates an impression of beauty reminiscent of ceramic art.
FLOATATION TUB is born from the “scientific study of bathing.” Its shape simulates a gravity-less, bathing position much like an astronaut in space. The technology allows the body to assume an ideal reclined position where body and mind are drawn toward a meditative state.
The tub features variable pillow positions for stability to ensure the bath can be enjoyed by all. It also features massaging water jets for an even more relaxing experience and indirect lighting to cast a gentle light around the tub.
