Space Toilet Receives Accolades

DURAVIT DEVELOPMENT ENGINEER, Franziska Wülker, won third place in a NASA
contest for her design of a toilet that can work in a weightless environment and on
the moon. Wülker's Lunar Loo space toilet can be used by female and male astronauts, and according to the company, excretions are fed into a centrifuge, where
they are accelerated and deposited in a tank via a screw conveyor. The makeup of
the self-contained toilet and its filters eliminates odors and prevents bacteria from
coming into the spaceship cabin. The contest received submissions from the more
than 20,000 people globally and offered a $35,000 prize for the three best designs.

EMSER TILE has named
SUZANNE ZURFLUH its new

director of design and trend.
She has had 20 years of
experience in design and
marketing luxury products
and will work to develop an
annual design and trend
strategy, including new
product collections, with
the marketing and product
development teams

" When developing toilets, we pay close attention to reliable flushing performance
and good hygiene, " said Wülker. " As well as functionality and design, we are also
always mindful of current issues such as water consumption. On our toilets designed
for use on earth, we are naturally assisted by gravity, which causes the excrement to
fall automatically into the toilet bowl. One of the biggest challenges in the construction of the Lunar Loo was rethinking everything to ensure that the functionality also
worked in a weightless environment. "
