In March, TOTO USA opened its Concept 109 facility in San Francisco, the first experiential Washlet studio in the world. The studio will hold regularly scheduled public events throughout the year to highlight the manufacturer’s fusion of innovation, high-design and technology, it noted.

Also, Concept 190 acts as an outlet to explore new avenues for creating TOTO’s bathroom of the future. The studio features TOTO’s smart toilets from its Neorest and Washlet lines.

“Concept 190 is an exciting project for TOTO USA and we’re thrilled to be opening our doors in the hub of global technology of San Francisco,” said Amy Rubinger, TOTO USA’s assistant manager of the Washlet division. “TOTO has long been on the front lines of industry innovations and we are delighted to be in a city that complements our company’s core spirit. San Francisco is the ideal location to show the world what the future of toilets will look like.”
