The Pee Tree

we make money not art: The Pee Tree

Ok now this is truly odd. Some German design school came up with the, wait for it… Pee Tree.

Some men avoid going to the public toilets due to the smelly atmosphere and, unable to find a wildlife tree, they go for street corners or the facade of your favourite bar. So Joa Herrenknecht has designed the Pee-tree urinal for public spaces. His bright ceramic white colour is a strong signal that can be seen from far – making it accessible when in urgent need. The trunk offers a perfect place for messaging, e.g. “I was here” or “done that” statements. The urine is directly flushed down to the underground sewage canal.
