TOTO just introduced a new toilet called 1G and announced that it’s the first manufacturer to break the one-gallon per flush barrier for a gravity-fed toilet, according to a recent statement. 1G is like a tornado in the toilet — less the noise of pressure-assist version — with a Double Cyclone flushing system.
Just in time for outdoor entertaining and BBQ, Loll Designs introduced a new line called the Fresh Air Collection derived from a flat-pack design for furniture originally intended to be shipped in a prefab, disaster-relief home. The home never materialized but that didn’t stop Loll from finishing their designs. The collection is made with paper-composite Richlite for structural bracing and recycled and recyclable HDPE (from milk jugs). Fresh Air includes a table at $760 and benches from $210.
Oregon-based Viridian Wood Products, a company we’ve mentioned in relation to reclaimed veneer panels and shipping pallet floors, just announced the debut of “American Classics.” These are a new line of reclaimed red oak, white oak, and rustic oak floors derived from industrial shipping crates.
