me: Wouldn't it be awesome for someone to go use the pooper and be, like, WTF?!?!?!?!
One concern of hers is the actual use of a cubist pooper. I've been (ahem...) self-observing the ergonomics of pooper use and have concluded that it doesn't really matter if a pooper is curvy or square. Now I will acknowledge that if you were horribly ill and had to literally hug the throne a square throne would be less huggable, but we can always do our barfing in one of the other bathrooms.
So what are the choices for cubist poopers? There are many, it turns out, but they are often more expensive than their rounder cousins.
The ideal one (by my eyes...) would be this one by Duravit for (cough, cough) $1,516 (without the in-wall tank and the toilet seat [What? No toilet seat?!?!!?]):
me: It's beautiful! It's perfect!
she: It looks like you're supposed to open it up to get a freakin' beer! We're going to be training your friends to pee in beer coolers!
And here's a wall mounted version for $1,708:
The toilet seat for these babies costs 300 some bucks (no wonder it's not included!). The in-wall systems (another one) seem to run about $400 to $600. Gulp. And then we'd need a flusher (acuator flush panel, to be precise...), which runs upwards of $100:
This Duravit is also gorgeous:
and very (yum! yum!) neoplastic. It's $640 without the in-wall water tank and the toilet seat (c'mon, man: include the seat, Duravit!). Given that it's wall mounted and hovers above the floor (cantilevered! another reason to love it!), the bride is concerned about our (ahem) larger friends sitting on it. She notes that hospitals are no longer installing wall mounted poopers (how the heck does she know this?).
Duravit also makes a stand-on-the-floor pooper of the cubes version for $880:
but it ain't as elegant... But it is truly a toilet Schindler would use. Yes he would!
There's this one by Kohler for about a grand:
but it's got a little Y action there. Not digging' the Y action.
Duravit also makes a stand-on-the-floor pooper-of-the-cubes:
But it runs $3,312. We'll have to flush that idea...
This one by Kohler is pretty awesome:
and has an equally awesomely price: $4,463.25!!! Double flush!!!
Fresca makes a cubish one for $529:
But it (how dare they!) mixes some subtle curves and diagonals in there.
And here's another blocky Fresca:
that somehow doesn't feel right.
So we'll have to do some more thinking and negotiating on this. Of course, the last thing we need is stuff that costs more. But the urge to neoplasticize the powder room is a powerful urge...
