By now, you’ve seen it: a toilet in a bathroom, toilet paper dispenser in a shower, toilet seat on a toilet.
And yes, it’s pretty much the most basic, generic toilet you can imagine.
But it’s the toilet that really makes it stand out.
In a new episode of The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, Noah explains how to make it look like it’s from the 1970s, a toilet that’s basically just a hole in the wall.
“The toilet is like a hole on the wall,” Noah says.
“You don’t really know how to put a hole through a wall.
But you can see the light reflected off of it.”
And it’s not a cheap thing to put in there.
So the team at Kohler, one of the largest and most influential brands in the toilet industry, made a prototype in order to see if they could create something with minimal effort.
“They wanted to make something like the ’60s,” Noah explains.
“So the first thing we did was we got a really nice bathroom sink and a couple of old, cheap, cheap things we could throw in.
And they came out really nice.
But we wanted something like this, so we were like, well, what do we do with this?
And we were trying to find something really, really, big.”
So the Kohler team created this toilet, which they named the Kohlwerker.
“That was the first toilet we did,” Noah remembers.
“And then we did this other toilet that was this giant hole in a wall.”
The Kohlerwerker is a giant hole.
And that hole is the toilet bowl.
