thermochromatic toilet seat

london based designer peter crnokrak has created ‘the thermochromatic toilet seat’ which he designed to solve a common problem: ‘being able to identify a public toilet seat that has just been sat upon (and is thus still warm) is of particular concern to a significant number of the population. without warning, one can easily sit upon a seat and be instantly repulsed by the trace evidence of a previous user.  the object retains the heat memory of a previous user and displays it as a visual marker for the next user to assess.’ a project which demonstrates a fine balance of humor and practicality. thermochromatic toilet seat
