WCircle is a smart, eco-friendly bathroom facilitating a modern experience while optimizing use of space to maintain a minimal footprint. Its main interface consists of a central revolving pod, rotating to provide either of three essential functions of everyday use: the washbasin, the toilet seat, and the shower. This capsule is essential for living environments with minimal space such as dorms, studio apartments. This innovative pre-built capsule has a self-cleaning system, and a grey water filtering technology that makes use of an easy unified.
WCircle is a holistic solution. It replaces the traditional bathroom, which requires selecting the walls, and floor finishes, sanitary fixtures, faucets, accessories, storage units, lighting, waterproofing, and complex pluming. The concept of the bathroom becomes a single device that can be inserted into any space like a piece of furniture. In addition to the time and effort needed to build a toilet, WCircle requires a smaller floor space than other bathrooms that have three main functions, while maintaining reasonable circulation space.
