Upgrading users’ experience in public restroom. The Problem: We are now over 7 billion persons on earth and we are mostly concentrated in a few large cities. We are travelling and moving from one place to another at an accelerating rate through busy airports, train stations, malls, skyscrapers, undergrounds, highways... Most of us feel exhausted at the end of a journey. We try to hide to ourselves that our bodies need some time and place to relax and to be alone. It just doesn’t work. This is why more and more offices and airports around the world are offering people a quiet environment for a nap to turn our mind off for a few minutes. The city of Toronto has even set up a kind of a «nap cubicle» on its downtown sidewalks so that anyone can use it to slow down a few minutes. The Solution: PARABO fits into this healthy trend of taking care of our body and mind, while keeping ourselves performing to our maximum. PARABO offers some privacy with its curved half wall. You appreciate being somewhat isolated from the crowd for a few minutes when passing through a busy airport. PARABO also offers a unique feature with its UV light (black light) integrated into its hand dryer. In an ergonomic movement, from left to right, soap drops into your hands automatically, and then water rinses your hands and then under the hand dryer. A UV light turned on automatically, you can see through the window if your hands still have bacteria. Bacteria will be visible (if any) thanks to the black light effect. PARABO name comes from the French words «paravent» which is a screen and «lavabo» a washing basin.
