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 [6] than the conventional portable loos available today, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
