yonoh: 'box' a modular bathroom system

interior of the box with all modules together



during 100% design london, the winners of the roca jumpthegap contest (dealing with bathroom products intended for architectural construction and interior spaces) were announced. one of the finalists was valencia-based studio yonoh who designed ‘box’, a modular bathroom system made from several parts: one including a watercloset and wash-basin, another containing the shower, a small seat, two shelves with towel racks and the last component meant to serve as an expansion piece to enlarge the bathroom and which also includes extra storage space.


the box requires water and electricity intake to supply everything necessary to the unit. when water is used by the shower and the wash-basin, it is stored in the used water tank which supplies the watercloset cistern. all faucet controls are electronic and inform you of the temperature and quantity of the water which has been exhausted.

the modules are formed by a metallic hollow structure which houses the water tanks, sanitary and electrical facilities

  • Just loved it! My graduation project was supposed to be a bathroom, but my teacher blew it, though it was a very good concept… This modular bathroom made me think about develop it again…
