Peeing in the train or at festivals… it is disliked by many but necessary for all. How come these toilet-experience are so unattractive? And what design solutions can be made to improve mobile urination for both man, woman and children? Tonight we will speak with Marian Loth (PhD TU Delft) and Aduén Darriba Frederiks (Studio Aan) about their socially engaged designs.
Do you still dare to use train toilets? Most of the people don't and that is a pity. Marian Loth, PhD Candidate at TU Delft, has researched urination behaviours on trains and has come up with a different design. Will this manage to change the situation? Marian will explain the reasons behind her design choices and will defend her project in front of our audience. Ready to engage in a productive discussion?
Aduén Darriba Frederiks
Ever heard of the pee-tap? Aduén Darriba Frederiks can tell you everything about it. He developed the plastap together with Arne Boom by Studio Aan in order to exchange pee with beer. Participants can donate their urine and receive a corresponding amount of beer as a reward. The idea behind this process is recycling. While the golden fluid is often regarded as a waste material, Studio Aan showed its actual value in a very practical, fun way. Think differently about your urination and opt for re-use!
