Perfection is part of how people live in Japan. It’s an expression of respect for others – reflected in private life, the ways in which people prepare food, or serve tea in a beautifully choreographed ceremony. It’s also present in industry, in which “Kaizen” is exemplified as a working philosophy and a methodological concept. At its core is a continuous striving for improvement, optimisation and perfection.

Masterful expertise in many areas

Examples include handmade Japanese knives of unparalleled quality in Damascus steel, or Japanese Kobe beef that makes connoisseurs swoon. Japanese products in the robotics and consumer electronics sectors are also considered among the best in the world.

Japanese bathroom producer TOTO follows in this tradition of striving for perfection with NEOREST WX – and will introduce the prototype at ISH. The designers and engineers have worked to create a perfect WASHLET in terms of both technology and design.

Perfect design and functionality

This idea of perfection manifests itself in the NEOREST Collection prototype to be introduced at ISH 2023. This development is based on over 40 years of experience and over 60 million WASHLET units produced to date. All cleansing and hygiene technologies from the latest WASHLET generation are incorporated – but the design hides all of this sophisticated engineering from view. This latest top-class NEOREST model delivers an all-encompassing feeling of cleanliness inspired by Japan’s unique hygiene practices. Both the design and technology in NEOREST WX were enhanced to create this new prototype.

Streamlined, minimalistic and timelessly elegant, NEOREST WX is a beautiful addition to any interior. Gently curved and harmoniously designed, the new model is a true all-rounder for luxury bathrooms.

All hygiene and comfort technologies united in NEOREST WX

NEOREST WX features the EWATER+ hygiene technology developed by TOTO: The wand jet used for intimate cleansing automatically cleans itself inside and out with electrolysed water – before and after use, but also regularly when in standby. This reduces bacterial formation and ensures hygienic conditions at all times. The ceramic bowl is sprayed with EWATER+ after each use to guarantee the greatest possible hygiene.

New NEOREST WX from TOTO uses very little water – just 4.5 litres per flush – and offers all hygiene and comfort technologies found in newer models. It is essentially touch-free, with a lid that raises and closes automatically, and an automatic flush. It’s possible to store individual settings in four user profiles. A remote control makes it easy to activate the various functionalities, which it provides in multiple languages: English, German, French and Italian. A LED light under the ceramic makes NEOREST WX easy to see in the dark.

TOTO is ushering in a new dimension of cleanliness and hygiene in the bathroom with NEOREST WX. It makes this personal everyday moment the perfect escape from everyday life – even outside of Japan.
