ROCA DESIGNERS Gabriele and Oscar Buratti have come up with a combination washbasin and lavatory for Roca called W+W. The idea is to filter and then re-use the waste water from the handbasin to fill the WC cistern for next time. This reduces water usage by up to 25 per cent, compared with a standard 6/3 litre dual-flush WC. …
