Indian truck art on mobile restroom

Kohler’s global Creative Director Tristan Butterfield decided to provide a cultural makeover to this solar-powered mobile restroom container which won the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation “Reinventing the Toilet Challenge” in 2012. After weeks of extensive research the result of the final exterior design established a cultural context to the environment in which these containers were placed. Selective motifs such as brightly coloured flowers, birds, animals and scenery together with messages propagated the significance of water conservation and environment sustainability. The exterior design of the restroom container was inspired by Indian truck art which is very recognisable thorough the country and was chosen for its cultural significance. Kohler hired local artists in India to paint the final design concept onto the container walls.
