NEOREST WX users can experience the next level of Japanese wellness every time they use the toilet – thanks to TOTO. There are two identical-looking versions of the high-end toilet with integrated WASHLET: NEOREST WX1 and NEOREST WX2. Every principle in TOTO’s design philosophy is reflected in NEOREST WX’s harmonious, understated form and comfortable size. A new ceramic material is used for the first time, allowing for finer, more elegant lines. These detailed enhancements are what make these quiet moments in the bathroom a perfect break from everyday life.
Perfection is part of how people live in Japan. It’s an expression of respect for others – reflected in a beautifully choreographed tea ceremony, for example. 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.
Japanese bathroom producer TOTO is committed to this tradition of striving for perfection. NEOREST WX represents a pinnacle in TOTO’s collection – with optimised technology and design, including the use of a new ceramic material. “This new material prevents the ceramic from warping as much during the firing process,” explains Kohei Tsuji, Director Product Management TOTO Europe. This gives the design even finer, more elegant lines.
NEOREST WX is the manifestation of TOTO’s design philosophy. It incorporates three essential aspects that the Japanese company describes as “gentle and safe in everyday life”, “long-lasting aesthetics” and “in harmony with the space”. The goal is to create a perfect, yet unassuming product that becomes an indispensable part of everyday life – a “pleasant interaction between a person and object,” explains Kohei Tsuji. NEOREST WX has already been named the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2023 “Winner”, and also received the iF Design Award 2023.
TOTO products have an understated, timeless design that hides the sophisticated technology that lies beneath. This is especially the case with the two new NEOREST WX models, which include all cleansing and hygiene technologies from the latest WASHLET generation.
Touch-free products aren’t just more comfortable. They’re also more hygienic, and easier for people of all generations to use – from small children to people with physical limitations. The smart toilet has a lid that raises and closes automatically, as well as an automatic flush. NEOREST WX is “intelligent” enough to activate either the large or small flush based on the time spent sitting. It’s possible to create four user profiles to save individual preferences, such as the warm water spray types, seat temperature and much more. The remote control makes it easy to use the various features, available in four languages: English, German, French and Italian. A soft LED light below the ceramic makes NEOREST WX visible in the dark.
TOTO introduced NEOREST WX at ISH 2023. Hubertus Brüggemann, Sales Director, TOTO Europe, is thrilled about this latest addition to TOTO’s portfolio: "NEOREST WX is the culmination of 40 years of experience and expertise in producing WASHLET and 60 million units sold world-wide. User-friendly and offering exceptional design, comfort and hygiene, it’s really the perfect product. NEOREST WX is an absolute highlight for any high-end bathroom."
