Toilet pot for slum areas
Industrial design research, sketches and conclusions
The industrial designer Annamaja Segtnan, the industrial design student Mona Mijthab and the researcher Ashley Wheaton, were contracted by GIZ Good Urban Governance Project to do research for a local adapted, low tech and inexpensive toilet pot.
The objectives of this project were:
I: Through industrial design and cooperation within sanitation community present toilet pot solutions that are culturally acceptable to the community.
II: Develop ideas for an integrated urban toilet pot that is easy to use, maintain, and viable in practical and economic terms. The toilet and/or the collection system should preferably destroy pathogens in faeces before they are returned to nature in an environmentally sustainable way (observing a previous attempt with biodegradable bags).
