Ceramic Toilets: the craft of mass production – Assemble

+ + +

ISABEL FARCHY AND HENRY STRINGER

A collaboration between Assemble, Isabel Farchy, Henry Stringer and Armitage Shanks to redesign and embellish the classic plain white toilet. The project seeks to apply traditional ceramic craft to create and decorate toilets, in the process revealing both the art of mass production and highlighting the strange social mores that drive conservatism in toilet design, an object which has remained relatively unchanged since its invention more than a hundred years ago.
