In Japan, You Can Go to the Bathroom in a Giant Cake

New, 1 comment

This big cake-like structure in Japan is both a public art installation and a functioning public restroom. (It was designed by Minako Nishiyama for the 2015 Oita Toilennale, which design you trust describes as "perhaps the world's first art festival dedicated to toilets.") While the outside is pretty cute, the interior, with walls covered in blown up pictures of glazed fruit, is somewhat more unsettling. We can't think of any particular reason why you wouldn't want to use a urinal while staring down a giant, glistening strawberry, but we can't think of a reason why you would, either.
