Nendo’s Self-Assembling Toilet for Natural Disasters

Nendo’s Minimilet project began after Japan’s Tōhoku and Kumamoto earthquakes—specifically the devastation and difficulties in the wake of each. Entirely collapsable, the disposable toilet can be assembled using found materials and then dismantled when needed. Made from several components: four aluminum pipes, C-shaped seat, privacy tent, garbage bags and a coagulant liquid, the toilet’s bag can also double as a water carrier. When governments aren’t equipped to deal with large-scale disasters (which is seemingly more common) it’s a troubling fact that we might need to fend for ourselves, and Nendo is working to make that easier.
