Rebecca McFleat

Overall winner


WC-Sphere – product design

The jury selected Rebecca’s work as the overall winner because of the innovative and well-communicated idea presented and how Rebecca tackled the difficult problem of sustainable human waste disposal in a thorough yet creative way.

The design for a human waste disposal unit that improves on hygiene through an automated flush system makes clever use of body weight to automate the flush system and removes the need for a separate flushing mechanism.

This is a complete redesign of the traditional shape and structure of a toilet for the flush system to work and enables a rethink of the traditional form of the toilet.

Consideration has been given to sustainable materials and the user experience and offers a complex and well realised design that has potential for development. 

The visual detail and information in the poster communicate a sophisticated thought process and unique idea.
