Pricey toilet is fit for a king4th of May 2011
We’ve all heard the word ‘throne’ being used to describe a toilet. Well now there’s a toilet so luxurious that it really is fit for royalty. The Kohler Numi sells for a cool 4,300 euros.
Kohler describes its loo as combining “unmatched design, technology and engineering to bring you the finest in personal comfort and cleansing. From its striking form and features to its unrivalled water efficiency, the Numi toilet marks a new standard of excellence in the bathroom”.
There’s no danger of getting chilly when you sit down - because the motion-activated seat is heated. And your feet are kept nice and warm too, by vents that gently blow hot air on them.
The spec also includes a charcoal-filtered deodoriser, built-in bidet, illuminated side panels and speakers with MP3 input sockets. And users won’t even need to go to the trouble of choosing their own music - the toilet will play pre-programmed music or radio broadcasts.
Judging by its website, the Numi is clearly positioned as THE toilet for high-earning trendy types – although bizarrely it is pictured in an open room with floor-to-ceiling glass.
