Abstract: A modern toilet for the modern user: The toilet is often an indication of the standards of its locality. Singapore is renowned for its progressive nature, and its modernity should be reflected accordingly. Washrooms have taken on creative makeovers in recent times, but toilets themselves have still seen little change - for such an essential product, toilets are paradoxically invisible. The Orb is thus a toilet that will elevate sanitaryware to a well-deserved status of dominance in an everyday bathroom. Beautiful and adaptable, it has the potential to be both functional and fun. The Orb’s structure begins with a compact basic unit comprising timeless forms- a detachable sphere for easy maintenance, balanced by a specially squared seat. Henceforth, the potential of nearly limitless further customization is created, as users expand their main unit according to their needs and preferences; whether transforming the seat into sleek long benches, or attaching gaming screens, or fixing a convenient bidet. The design of the main unit is such that it can accommodate any of these parts. With a subtly simple yet stylish design to enhance any bathroom environment, the facility to cater to individual desires, and the capacity to integrate future technological developments- the Orb will meet both ancient and contemporary needs within a thoroughly becoming package.
