Understated Presence

Our wish is to provide,
as an integral part of everyday life, enrichment to every person.
Our goal is to design products
with integrity and longevity,
to which people form an attachment over time.
Weaving together spaces that are beautiful and comfortable,
and experiences that are pleasant.

This is the TOTO design.

Users play the leading role and design plays a supporting role.
This is our concept of “Understated Presence.”

Design should not be so assertive that it interferes with the user’s uniqueness of home and lifestyle.
The essence of “ Understated Presence ” is our concept of users in the leading role,
with design playing a supporting role. We are committed to designing products that can be used comfortably every day,
in consideration of our users and their lifestyles.

Episodes that unravel Understated Presence

A beauty that resides
in easy-to-use tools

Many excellent tools have supported our lives since ancient times.
Those tools are easily used without conscious thought
and have an unobtrusive beauty that becomes a part of daily life
through the graceful form of their use.
This is a concept that we value and pursue when designing our products.

Consider the rice bowl. Its base makes it easy to hold without burning your hand. It also naturally makes the way you hold it beautiful.

This is a traditional iron kettle. The pattern on the surface increases the surface area to improve heat retention, but it is also decorative and pleasing to the eye.

A Japanese kitchen knife looks simple, but its form is necessary to enhance the knife's sharpness and to best match certain ingredients and cooking styles. The more you use it, the better it fits your hand, creating a feeling of attachment.

Designs that harmonize with
and complement your home

Living spaces are decorated and finished by the people who live there according to their own tastes.
We want our products, which constitute spaces
as a construction material, to be designed to complement, not hinder,
the daily lives of many kinds of people.

As construction materials, our products enhance unique lifestyles while harmonizing with the space surrounded by users' favorite furniture, accessories, plants, and other items.

We provide environments that facilitate and enhance our users' unique decorations and arrangements.

Our designs allow the feeling that gently blends with a richness of time with seasonal decorations of flowers, plants, and trees.

The three design elements

The three design elements that realize “Understated Presence”

“A part of everyday life”
“Offers peace of mind”
“Gentle to the human body”

Our designs allow unconscious use with comfortable movements and postures.
They are beautifully designed to provide comfortable daily experiences.

NEOREST

NX

Toilet seats directly touch the skin, so we design them to be easy to sit on and clean to allow comfortable use every day. The toilet seat has a curved form we have researched and developed to lead users to a posture that facilitates toilet use.

FLOTATION TUB

This is a new bathtub concept, one that allows relaxation of body and mind while being immersed in a sense of floating. We have scientifically derived a relaxing form that maintains posture and stabilizes the center of gravity in a lay-down bathing style, creating a gentle design that envelops the user.

“Harmonizes with space”
“Pleasant interface between people and objects”
“Beautiful appliance”

We create spaces that blend by eliminating unnecessary elements and allowing room for residents to create arrangements. Through design, we create forms that blend with architectural spaces, touch the human body, and feel comfortable.

NEOREST

LS

While controlling the inflection of straight lines and curves, the design realizes both harmony with the architectural space and a graceful character. The design subtly adds accents and allows for interior coordination.

Washbasin TA

The asymmetrical form is inspired by uneven and gently fluctuating shapes existing in the natural world. It creates fortuitous accents that change their impression depending on the angle from which they are viewed in everyday settings.
