PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Works of art, illustrations and photos are printed onto vinyl films that are heated and then
wrapped around a toilet. These films can be removed and the toilet may be restored to its
original condition; or a new illustration or photo may be wrapped upon request. As toilets
are regularly cleaned to maintain a good sanitary environment, these wrappings are
designed to retain their original color and hard to come off. The toilet has been transformed
into a work of art and the restroom has become a room people of all ages desire to visit.

3 YEARS OF RESEARCH

A 3 years of intensive research and experimentation were undertaken for mapping
techniques and composite films. Algorithms were developed that allowed works of art,
illustrations and photos to be wrapped around toilets without distorting the image.
Composite films and adhesives that meet the sanitary requirements of toilet which cause
no discoloration nor detachment were also developed.

ORIGINAL TECHNOLOGY

Vinyl composite films composed of several very thin layers were developed so the image
printed retains its color. Special adhesives are used which ensure the films shall not come
off by normal sweeping etc, while also allowing the toilet to be restored to its original
condition or new images may be wrapped around the toilet upon request.

Artoletta&Technology

If the material wrapped is spherical, it can be expressed by 2D graphics with slits.
But it is not the case for toilet as it’s ununiform sphere. → Unable to use Slits

Test Result
Soft Side:No remarkable scratch after 21,600 strokes.
Hard Side: Scratches were observed after 5,400 strokes.

INTERACTION

A beautifully decorated toilet provide our mind with a healing through visual sense. It
means the end of a negative restroom environment which is dirty and dark for not only kids
but for adults. In a commercial complex, Artoletta is a topic and attracting customers. This
product also contributes to the medical welfare. It provides not only a healing but support
for people with weak eye sight to identify the toilet location by using a color easy to see.
This technology may be applied to other interiors such as wall, furniture and equipment i.e.
a restroom could be totally coordinated and decorated.
