This isn't your grandmother's toilet—in fact, it's barely recognizable as one. Kohler, Wis.–based Kohler has reduced the traditional toilet to its bare essentials, a hatbox-shaped minimalist unit. The tankless product has a soft-touch side actuator and a 0.2 hp electric pump that makes the most of its 1.6 gallon flush. It's an ergonomically correct 17 inches high—the same as the average chair—and comes in six colors. Kohler, 800.456.4537; www.kohler.com.
