The Most Beautiful Bathrooms in the World

As I mentioned in a previous post, the bathrooms at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center are utterly remarkable. Artists were commissioned to create bathroom environments using the industrial processes available at the Kohler factory. The sinks, toilets and tiles of these washrooms are glazed porcelein, as tough and easy to clean as boring old white tiles. If you're planning a reno of the old "bog", here's some inspiration. And there are lots more photos on the Art Center website.

I didn't get a chance to ask any men what they thought of the "Gentlemen" facilities, but when I first arrived at the Kohler and used the "Ladies", it was full of women snapping photos and giggling their heads off.



I promised Lisa Anne Auerbach that I would take some "Knit and Shit" photos as she so demurely calls them. The first few are a la the Yarn Harlot's sock pictures.





But I finally dropped my pants to fully avail myself of the Family bathroom's hospitality.

The really funny part was when I stood up the ball of yarn fell in the toilet. An unanticipated hazard!
