In an attempt to connect city dwellers with nature, Ekateryna Sokolova has come up with a public lavatory concept christened, ‘Back to Nature.’ People working in tall buildings hardly get any time to form a bond with their beautiful surroundings. The multisensory project will make a public lavatory more relaxing and private, while still making you feel in the lap of nature.
The functional and practical restroom will consist of artificial grass, which will be fitted on a perforated belt. The belt will be split into shorter segments measuring 50 cm each. When the grass gets dirty, a sensor detects this and washes the unclean section by inverting it. Back to Nature will club the voices and smell, which we experience while interacting with nature. When someone enters the lavatory, they will be greeted by a noise of chirping birds, sound of wind and soft tone of leaves. This will follow with the fragrance of fresh grass, grazing lands and forest areas.
Water running through faucets will be nothing but pure. It will be robotically disinfected and scented for a pleasant experience. The artificial grass finds a place in the urinals as well and is cleaned frequently. It is also proposed to envelop the walls with pictures from nature. Even the toilet paper will have figures from the natural world. This will heighten the whole experience of being surrounded by nature.
Back to nature with its unique qualities can be easily adjusted according to the size of a room. So, get ready to dive in a pure world and experience the aura of lavatories that come coated with the freshness of nature.
