ONE HUNDRED restrooms wins 2019 platinum MUSE Design Award!

Out of more than 3,680 submissions from 60 countries, ONE HUNDRED restrooms – the new standard in public restrooms – has won the Platinum Interior design Award of the Year in the 2nd season of the 2019 MUSE Design Awards competition. The winning project was created by the Antwerp based design studio WeWantMore for ONE HUNDRED.

“We believe the restroom of the future is a place, a sanctuary built around the principles of health and well-being and powered by smart technology. This vision is reflected in our interior design. Winning the MUSE Award is a confirmation that we have indeed created a new standard.”
Marielle Romeijn, co-founder and CBO of ONE HUNDRED restrooms.

“Inspired by ONE HUNDRED’s vision, we wanted to redefine the toilet break moment as such. Rather than designing a merely functional area, we re- interpreted the concept of a public restroom as a place to relieve, refresh and reload. As a result, the ONE HUNDRED restrooms experience goes beyond a clean toilet in a high traffic area. It creates a true moment of well-being through an intricate combination of cutting-edge technology, design and service.” Carine Aussems, Design Director Spatial Design at WeWantMore.

Today we celEbRATE WORLD TOILET DAY!

A toilet is not just a toilet. It’s a life-saver, dignity-protector, an opportunity-maker, a moment of well-being. Whoever you are, wherever you are, sanitation is your human right. And yet, today, 4.2 billion people live without safely managed sanitation.

A few weeks ago Marielle Romeijn had the pleasure to meet Jack Sim, founder of The World Toilet Organization and the man behind the World Toilet Day. Jack brings international attention to the importance of global sanitation and fights to ensure no one is left behind without access to safe toilets.

Donate to support Jack’s work at the World Toilet Organization at worldtoilet.org and leave no one behind!

BARCELONA 

On Tuesday the 29th of October we spend a full day at the IoT world solutions congress in Barcelona to promote our ONE HUNDRED brand, to discuss innovations and to meet new prospects and partners.

We look back at a very inspirational day!

Creating industry standards, training people and co-create with customers and partners are some of the key outtakes from this day. 

Together with Roca we shared our vision on digital transformation in the bathroom of the future. We even got the opportunity to do a podcast interview about our concept, which will be available soon.

And last but not least, we took another step in creating attention for the importance of the Digital Bathroom Association (DBA), which will be officially launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. More info will follow soon!

GrAND OPENING STOCKHOLM

Today, the Dutch Ambassador opened the first ONE HUNDRED® flagship store in Stockholm. A completely new approach to public restrooms, promoting health and wellbeing, that answers to increasing worries about hygiene among 28 percent of young Swedes.

The new standard in public washrooms

Health & Hygiene are not the first things that come to mind when visiting a public washroom. But in Stockholm you can now visit the first store of One Hundred restrooms and leave healthier and without any hygiene concerns. One Hundred restrooms offer visitors services to “Relieve, Refresh, Reload” that turns a toilet visit from a necessary evil into a reviving micro break.

Partnering, among others, with Essity’s Tork brand, to secure relevant customer insights and latest hygiene innovations in the new restroom experience. “These high-standard facilities will improve essentials like handwashing. Wherever you live, handwashing can prevent infections
and even save lives”, says Joséphine Edwall-Björklund, Head of Communications at Essity.

The facilities include many new features beside the design, experience and cleanliness. With cutting-edge technology, health-check areas, a hydration station and other services that make a difference to the well-being of visitors. All designed and equipped with a high degree of environmental awareness and innovation.

Launching in Stockholm with big ambitions

The Dutch company now enters the Swedish market after having successfully launched the new concept in Spain. The company’s global ambitions are focused on high traffic areas, such as shopping centers, transport hubs and gas stations. “It’s our ambition to welcome 100 million visitors, within a few years from now.” says Chief Commercial Officer of One hundred restrooms, Niels Bakker.

The Dutch Ambassador in Sweden, Mrs. Ines Cooppoolse, and Josephine Edwall-Björklund, Senior Vice President Communications of Essity addressed the importance of hygiene & health innovations at the opening ceremony. The store is located in the Gallerian shopping center, the most iconic shopping mall, in the heart of Stockholm.
