Combining the advantages of a toilet and a bidet in a single object, Laufen has created the Cleanet Riva shower WC. The idea was hatched in Switzerland almost 60 years ago but was only taken to a final stage this year. The Cleanet Riva shower WC performs all the functions of a toilet and a bidet. It includes a spray that can be regulated in regard to intensity, position, and temperature, as well as providing perfect disinfection after each use, with an active carbon filter absorbing the odours. Based on the synergy between Laufen’s technical expertise and Peter Wirz’s design, the Swiss-engineered unit won the Red Dot Award 2016.
