If you're a girl who has envied how easy it is for guys to pee in public, Copenhagen-based UiWE's Pollee urinal might be just what you've been looking for. The company has developed three very cool prototypes of ladies-only urinals that - unlike the more individualistic P-tree urinals recently profiled for men - present girls with a more communal and sanitary public peeing option. Of course, some ladies are more shy than others, so UiWE tested out three different versions with varying levels of privacy at the rocking Roskilde festival in Denmark earlier this month.
The Pollee urinal is comprised of four seats surrounding a central core, allowing four ladies to relieve themselves at once. Handy bars have been provided to help women maintain their stability (particularly if they’ve had a couple of beers at a music festival) while they squat over the seats.
Three versions of the Pollee are currently being tested: the Pollee Naked for the girls who aren’t shy about pulling down their pants in public, featuring no walls, the Pollee Topless, which has low walls, and the Pollee Shy, which offers almost complete privacy. We’re not sure yet what materials are being considered for this elegant design, which is simpler, cleaner, and seemingly less wasteful than the conventional portable loos available today, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
