The new artistic Waza Miyabi collection was showcased at the KBIS (Kitchen/Bath Industry show) 2009 by Toto, the company well known for its innovative toilets. The patterns exhibited by the models in the collection are based on ‘sho-chiku-bai’, which means “pine, bamboo and plum” in Japanese. Each toilet creates a piece of high art for the bath space with its hand-painted designs in vivid colors and intricate detailing. It is typically evocative of the sober Japanese temperament in every model.
The golden plum-and-bamboo design is painted with 24-karat gold to evoke a golden summer day and retails for $12,000. The other three designs come for $10,000.
