TOTO introduces two new automatic faucet collections featuring the SELF POWER and water-saving ECO CAP technologies. Perfect for guest bathrooms, hotels and public washrooms, these collections were both recognised with the international Red Dot Award and Green Design Award for their outstanding design. Available in a wide range of different versions, there is a perfect faucet for every washbasin – from self-rim and undercounter washbasins to furniture washbasins and vessels.

TOTO transforms everyday handwashing into a special ritual. The design of the new automatic faucets inspires people to take a moment and enjoy the minimalistic aesthetic, which gives every washbasin and bathroom that certain something.

Beyond the design and individual preferences, the functional aspects are what make a truly winning impression: The round and square faucet collections each have five different versions – all of which are touch-free and use very little water. One special feature of TOTO’s touch-free faucet is the SELF POWER technology, which can also be called an integrated “hydropower plant”: One of the smallest sensors in the world is installed in the faucet spout, registering people’s hand movements to activate the flow of water. A second technology is also at work inside the faucet: A generator converts the energy from the flow of water to power the microsensor.

Another new technology is TOTO’s ECO CAP, which adds air to the water to reduce consumption and create a comfortable sensation: The stream of water feels very gentle and full, but the faucet only uses two litres.

Each of these faucet collections – square and round – is available in three heights and two different wall spout lengths. The perfect faucet is available for all types of washbasins – from self-rim and undercounter washbasins to furniture washbasins and vessels. The two collections impressed the judges for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022 in February 2022: The design experts praised the “minimalistic design approach” and “expressiveness”, recognising the collections as winners. These two touch-free faucet collections also won the Green Good Design Award 2021. The “harmony of the design with its surroundings” played a role in the award, as well as the factor of “user-friendliness”.

Touch-free in the bathroom – TOTO faucets, shower toilets and more

Society’s experiences with the pandemic over the past few years have sensitised people in a variety of different respects, especially when it comes to hygiene. Cleanliness is important whenever several people use the same bathroom. The fewer surfaces people have to touch, the more comfortable. Touch-free faucets and hand dryers were once found exclusively in public washrooms but are increasingly found in private homes today. In addition to its touch-free faucets, TOTO offers a number of other products that help elevate hygiene: shower toilets with automatic flush (WASHLETTM), automatic soap dispensers, hand dryers and washbasins with especial dirt-resistant ceramic surfaces.
