Innovative Bathroom Toilet Design Recognized for Exceptional Water Conservation and Efficiency

COMO, CO, ITALY, July 1, 2024 / — The prestigious A’ Design Award has announced Sustenta, a groundbreaking bathroom toilet designed by Manuel Alonso Martinez Rivera, as the Silver winner in the Sustainable Products, Projects and Green Design category. This highly respected award celebrates designs that exemplify excellence, innovation, and a commitment to advancing sustainable practices within the industry.

Sustenta’s recognition holds significant relevance for the Sustainable Product industry, as it showcases a design that directly addresses the critical need for water conservation without compromising performance. This award not only validates the importance of sustainable design but also highlights the practical benefits it offers to users, manufacturers, and the environment as a whole.

What sets Sustenta apart is its remarkable ability to function effectively using only 2.5 liters (0.66 gallons) of water per flush, a 60% reduction compared to standard “ecological” toilets. This substantial water savings is achieved through innovative design features that optimize flushing force and ensure thorough cleaning. Despite its eco-friendly credentials, Sustenta maintains the highest quality standards, complying with stringent ASME requirements.

The Silver A’ Design Award serves as a testament to Sustenta’s potential to inspire future designs and influence industry standards. By demonstrating that exceptional water efficiency can be achieved without sacrificing performance or aesthetics, Sustenta paves the way for a new generation of sustainable bathroom fixtures. This recognition motivates the design team to continue pushing the boundaries of sustainable innovation.

Sustenta was brought to life through the collaborative efforts of a talented team: Manuel Martínez Rivera (Product Designer), Daniel Verde Hernandez (Project Manager), Fernando Diaz Ochoa (Product Engineer), Jonathan Blancas Sanchez (Product Engineer), Eduardo Montoya Orozco (Product Laboratory Testings), and Marco Aurelio Sanchez (Quality Control).
