Dezeen Agenda features a toilet made from wood chips and bioplastic resin

The latest edition of our weekly Dezeen Agenda newsletter features a toilet made from wood composite, which its designers says generates fewer emissions than ceramic toilets. Subscribe to Dezeen Agenda now.

Finnish design company Woodio has designed a wall-mounted toilet that is formed from wood composite.

According to Woodio, its production process generates 99 per cent fewer emissions than that used to create traditional ceramic sanitaryware.

The material used to create the toilet consists of 80 per cent wood by volume, but it still relies on several fossil-based resources including polyester resin, which is mixed with bioplastic resin to create a composite with the wood chips.
