Portable toilet for natural disasters, wars or home emergencies or Safaris:
‘Nendo’ designed a series of basics for situations of natural disasters, wars or earthquakes, or even for emergencies within the home.
If you’re fixing the pipes and pipes … and you need to go to the bathroom, what do you do? (knowing that everyone on this planet goes to the toilet).
Here is when a specially designed portable bath is required. It is made with resistant tubes to build shelters. Minimalist and true to his style, but no less functional.
The Japanese designer ‘Nendo’ developed emergency kits that bring the victim of an earthquake, war or natural disaster close to him to solve the immediate help.
Since the earthquakes that devastated the Northeast coast and the Kumamoto region in 2011 and 2016, Oki Sato, the architect in charge of the study, focused on the design of help elements for the makeshift shelters around the affected areas.
In addition to the tube containing radio, drinking water, flashlight, remedies and a waterproof layer (Minim + Aid), the toilet was now known. Portable, intimate and easy to transport, the removable bath requires few elements. Several are at hand: plastic bottles, an umbrella, waste bags. The rest is completed with aluminum tubes, the toilet seat and coagulant.
The kit, developed is presented in a lightweight bag that contains the aluminum tubes (can also be used as support posts for the tent or as legs to support the toilet seat) and the nylon fabric that serves as a tent.
The waterproof bag has a bellows so that, as a bucket, up to 16 liters of water are transported for daily needs. The interior of the toilet seat is also designed as a container for storing small parts.
