Au fond à droite : portes ouvertes sur les toilettes exhibition

Everything you’ve always wanted to know about toilets but have never dared to ask!

Discover the first European general public exhibition focusing on little rooms designed for people of all ages.
Grouping 26 toilets that are original, astonishing, designer-made, functional or technological, this exhibition created and mounted by VIA will interest young and old.

Accompanying the exhibition, visitors will also find:

- Two display windows covering the façade of the exhibition entrance, one presenting urinals imported direct from the United States, the other showing accessories for toilets

- A bar decorated with toilet paper in a fresco presenting the range of colours of the Point WC collection, where visitors will discover new aesthetics and humorous graphics.

- Dresses made of Renova toilet paper, designed by young creators from Maisons de Mode in Lille, which will be modelled during the show.

The Foire de Paris will also be hosting in this exhibition a prototype built for the ‘Reinvent the Toilet’ competition launched by the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, which addresses the very real health hazard posed by the lack of toilets in the world today, where some 2 billion people do not have proper sanitary facilities.
Au Fond à Droite : portes ouvertes sur les toilettes : an amazing exhibition that is thoughtful and playful, and which invites visitors to look at toilets from a new angle.
