Toilet machine is produced according to the method of ‘common sense’. It all started with the decision to make concrete mixer. From here onward, I made series of decisions following the principle: as simple as possible, and in such way that it seems it could work. In short, I followed the ‘common sense’. If I pour sand and concrete into the toilet and add water, I can intercept useless slush below. ‘Common sense’ has been proven not to be unmistakable.
