World’s most valuable toilet10th of January 2012
A Japanese toilet manufacturer has created the world's most valuable toilet, in order to please the ‘god of lavatories'.
Toilet maker INAX teamed up with an Austrian jeweller to create the toilet - studded with more than 72,000 Swarovski crystals. It's been on display in a showroom in Tokyo's top shopping district.
Kazuo Sumimiya, director of the showroom for the Lixil interior fixture company, said it was created to please the ‘god of lavatories'.
"In Japan, we believe a deity exists in the lavatory. That's why keeping lavatories clean and taking good care of it have been a Japanese custom since long ago," he said.
"If we were to sell it, it would probably be worth around 10 million yen (almost 100,000 euros)."
