A toilet

like a gallery

Gallery Toto, Narita Airport,

Tokyo, Japan


A public restroom that also functions as a showroom for the Japanese toilet brand TOTO. Designed by Klein Dytham Architects, the luminous textile panels play prerecorded sequences featuring activities such as dancing, skating, or cleaning.

Customer Challenge


The idea of this project is to share the sense of toilet comfort that is so important in Japan from Narita International Airport to the rest of the world. Klein Dytham architecture has been asked to develop the ideas and objectives into GALLERY TOTO.

The right lighting


Klein Dytham Architects designed a gallery with luminous textile panels featuring activities such as dancing, skating, or cleaning. While it would appear that restroom-goers have no privacy, the screens keep 10 individual bathroom cubicals completely hidden from the bustling airport terminal beyond. The LED panels were made using Philips luminous textile with Kvadrat Soft Cells, making this one of the most interesting applications we’ve seen to date.
