AN saw the newest innovations in the toilet sector this past January at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show and the Consumer Electronics Show. As we look forward to the International Bathroom Exhibit and Eurocucina (technology for the kitchen) at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in April, we want to share our favorite toilet designs thus far. From designer spin-offs to the newest, most luxurious features, this latest round up of toilets is top-notch.

Sensowash Stark C by Philippe Stark

French designer Philippe Stark is known mostly for his furniture and interiors, so most readers might not be privy to his darn good toilet design. The goal of this collaborative design effort was ultimate cleanliness. The result? A bidet function that has three different water shower variations: one for the rear, one for women, and a more attentive wash that sprays forward and backward.
