This Toilet Seat Was Inspired by the MacBook Air

If you were on a quest to design the perfect toilet seat, what would you base the design on? Likely something that is sleek, elegant and durable. Something like the MacBook Air, which is popular for its visual design and physical properties. You don’t have to worry so much about the hardware specs for a toilet seat though.

The Pinkhouse design studio in New York City was inspired by the Macbook Air and created this new toilet seat. There is one design flaw that I can see and that is that most human butts are round, so good luck. The cover is laser-cut from 12-gauge steel and if you want it can even be powder-coated in the color of your choice.

It will cost you $850(USD). I really hope this is an April Fools Day joke, because anyone who spends that kind of money on a toilet seat is a real idiot and should be forced to sit on it all day long.

Pledge at least $30 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a Brik Case as a reward.
