NIM: The W+W - Good Design & Environmentally Savy

For me, good design is not just about aesthetics.  It's also about good functionality.  With Roca's new W+W (Washbasin and Watercloset) we get both.  The shape of the fixture is simple yet elegant (I assume one could get a model with the WC on the left) and it's size makes it suitable for even the smallest bathroom.

But the attention to detail doesn't stop there.  The water that is used in the sink serves double duty.  Once it drains from the sink it is treated and then stored for use the next time the WC is flushed, saving water consumption.  In addition, the faucet that comes with the W+W is designed to open in the "cold" position preventing unnecessary hot water usage.
