A vertical bathroom !

In some countries a people’s living space  has been becoming smaller and smaller. There might be few reasons : overpopulated city, too expensive rents, enjoying tiny minimalist architecture and design and many others. Probably the smallest parts of our homes are bathrooms and we want to save space as much as we can.

This vertical stainless steel bathroom full of secret shelves, toilet and even shower looks a bit like a space ship bathroom, right from the future!

“The Vertebrae” was designed by Paul Hernon and he got inspired mostly from functional modern architecture and from our own natural spinal system.

Each level of series independently rotating vertebrae serves for different needs. Toilet with side compartments, sink and basin, storage spaces and a shower with pull-out shower heads. All of these components can be folded up when not in use.

This design idea is not just for luxury hotels or offices to impress their customers but it is mostly a space-saving tactic for tiny personal apartments or condo bathrooms with no room for all of these amenities. Stainless steel gives it a futuristic look with a clean and modern feeling.

How Should You (Not) to Use Gold?


If only I had a lot of gold, I would have a bathroom of gold and every day I would use golden toilet paper to wipe my tush. Come on, who really wants to use gold that way? Well apparently there are people who do, because some companies manufacture gold bathrooms and gold toilet paper. People can purchase 22-carat gold toilet paper rolls with US 1.4 million in Dubai. These are not the only weird instances of using gold. The expensive material has made a lot of people crazy.


Some people take really extreme with gold. It’s not necessarily a bad thing. Creative out-of-the-box thinking has made it possible for people to create beautiful gold masterpieces.


The list of unusual gold products is long. Vibrators, iPhones. MacBooks, Legos, Coffee makers, Christmas Trees and so on. There are even golden Porches and Mercedes cars. A golden iPhone 5 is worth of seven normal iPhone 5s.


Even more interesting is that they even make edible objects out of gold. There are gold cheese, ice cream, chocolate and mineral water with gold chips. Do some people actually have so much gold that they can afford to eat it? See the list of original articles to find out more of bizarre gold objects.


In order to find that much gold or even silver, you need a professional rock crushing tool for separating commercially valuable minerals from ores and a vibrating screen from locating them from the crushed rocks. Shanghai Metal Corporation has a long experience in offering excellent mining machinery for businesses worldwide. To know more about our machinery, please visit our website.
