American manufacturer Kohler has created one of the world’s most expensive toilets called the Numi, priced at $6,390.
The Numi comes with a ‘sleek, interactive LCD touch-screen interface’ as well as a ‘built-in personalised bidet functionality and deodoriser’.
According to Kohler, it features innovative dual-flush technology, unmatched comfort features and an intuitive auto opening and closing lid.
You’ll never have to worry about cold cheeks either, because the toilet’s motion-activated seat is heated. Your feet will be kept nice and warm too, by the toilet’s vents that gently blow hot air on them.
And if you’ve got time to kill on the loo, it also comes with speakers equipped with MP3 input sockets. You won’t even need to go to the trouble of choosing your own music though, because the toilet will also play pre-programmed music or radio broadcasts.
Jim Lewis, Kohler’s vice-president of marketing, said: “It’s truly an innovative product that makes a bold design statement.
“We envisioned a toilet that creates a category in a calibre of its own. Numi packs technology into a compact toilet and is controlled by an advanced and intuitive interface. It’s an astounding example of modern industrial design where form and function go hand in hand.”
Although $6,390 is a pretty hefty price tag for a toilet, remarkably the Numi does not hold the title for the world’s most expensive toilet. That title goes to a toilet made by Hang Fung Gold Technology in Japan, which is made of solid 24-carat gold and worth around $37 million.View Comments
