Roca W+W is a unique product in terms of design and solutions and reflects Roca’s “water-reuse technology”. Designed by Milan designers, Gabriele and Oscar Buratti, Roca W+W features a single unit – washbasin merged with a toilet which reuses waste water from the washbasin to fill the toilet cistern. The innovative product helps in reducing water usage by up to 25% compared to a standard WC. Integration of the expression of innovation and design, Roca W+W has been appreciated worldwide, sweeping up a series of awards, including the highly coveted Design Plus award.
