In the heart of the Brompton Design District, the Shit Museum presents Toilet Break, from 17 to 25 September. Toilet Break is a project carried out in alliance (for the second time) with Dirty Furniture magazine, which for this occasion launches its third issue which is devoted entirely to the subject of toilets.
Toilet Break hosts a pop-up shop of Merdacotta products and a programme of talks to encourage dialogue about sustainable design; it will include a display of the Museum’s iconic products that were presented at the last Milan Design Week during which its The Shit Evolution won a prestigious Milano Design Award as the best display at the Milan Design Week.
The project, by Luca Cipelletti, consists of a display area that has a functional use during the talks. The debating room is furnished with Merdacotta seats and other elements, including a Merdacotta lectern for the moderator; a video that Henrik Blomqvist shot in the Museum at Castelbosco, Italy, is a visual entertainment during the debates.
Next to this area – where the Museum becomes a veritable promoter of the debate on informed, sustainable design – is the pop-up shop where visitors can, for the first time, purchase the full range of the Shit Museum’s Primordial Products, including its famous tableware, flowerpots, vases, tiles, tables, seating, etc.
