Circular Flows: The Toilet Revolution


Triennale Milano, 2019

It is one of the most pressing environmental problems of our time and yet largely unknown: The pollution of our waters by nitrogen. EOOS has developed the revolutionary prototype of a toilet for urine separation (urine trap), which offers a systemic design solution to fight the global nitrogen problem. The official Austrian contribution to the XXII International Exhibition of La Triennale di Milano 2019 presents the urine trap embedded in a multimedia installation that illustrates the ecological interaction of coastal waters, sewage systems and agriculture.

The EOOS exhibition shows the contribution the urine separation toilet can make to the repair of the valuable nitrogen cycle and thus to the preservation of the ecological boundaries of our planet.

The Austrian contribution was commissioned by MAK – Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna and financed by the Federal Chancellery of Austria.
