Toto, the company well known for its innovative toilets, showcased the new, artistic Waza Miyabi collection at the KBIS (Kitchen/Bath Industry Show) 2009.

The patterns for these toilet models are based on sho-chiku-bai, which means “pine, bamboo and plum” in Japanese.

“Each toilet is hand-painted in vivid colors with intricate detailing, creating a piece of high art for the bath space,” Toto spokeswoman Lenora Campos said.

The golden plum-and-bamboo design for summer is shown here, painted with 24-karat gold to evoke a golden summer day. Price: $12,000.

The remaining three designs come for $10,000 each. Via: LATimes
