Mizudori Gallery is proud to announce they have been appointed as an exclusive authorised agent for the iconic Japanese brand, TOTO. The opening of TOTO’s first flagship showroom in Sydney presents an opportunity for Australians to view concept bathrooms and the latest in TOTO technology and design.
Randall Cadby, General Manager and part owner of Mizudori Gallery, first discovered TOTO on a ski holiday in Japan in 2005. It was from this first encounter, and sharing his passion of TOTO products with friends, that Randall left the construction industry after forty years to open his first showroom as a bathroom retailer in 2009.
"TOTO is the world’s market leader in sanitary ware and is the only ‘end-to-end’ manufacturer of bathroom products: everything from toilet, bath, and taps to toilet roll holders and vanities. TOTO are renowned for their luxury so it’s no wonder they are the first choice for exclusive hotels, celebrity homes and upmarket renovations” Randall | Mizudori Gallery
With Australian consumers demanding an ever-more luxurious and fulfilling bathroom experience; the time is right for the world’s most sophisticated bathroom products to be introduced to the Australian market. Mizudori Gallery and TOTO are set to elevate the Australian bathroom from merely functional to being luxurious, restorative, meditative and, of course, hygienically clean.
TOTO is the leading manufacturer of bathroom products and is celebrated for innovative, superbly designed, lifestyle enhancing products for residential bathrooms, hotels and commercial restrooms. TOTO design their bathroom furnishings in accordance with their beliefs of protecting the environment and its finite resources, which has now made TOTO an iconic brand in Japan and highly desirable throughout the world.
"TOTO defies description. The quality is exceptional and no other brand is like it. As well as the TOTO technology is so far ahead of anyone else in the market.” Randall | Mizudori Gallery
TOTO founder, Kazuchika Okura, had a vision more than one hundred years ago in 1912, before the concept of public sewage systems was widespread in Japan. After seeing more advanced systems overseas, he was moved to establish a ceramic sanitary ware laboratory to develop healthier and cleaner living spaces. In 1917, Okura founded Toyo Toki K.K. (which became known as TOTO LTD.) to supply the market with these products. From 1980 TOTO launched the first Washlet, providing consumers with a whole new level of cleanliness and comfort. In 1993 the NEOREST toilet was launched incorporating the Washlet with a comprehensive range of TOTO’s innovations. It brings with it the fullest realisation yet of the principle of Clean Technology. Impressively, in 2015 TOTO Washlet sales exceeded 40,000,000 units worldwide.
Japan’s rich artistic heritage in pottery and porcelain is alive in every TOTO product created today. Throughout TOTO’s history, they have remained true to the Japanese traditions that have shaped their company motto and philosophy.
"Take pride in your work, and strive to do your best.” TOTO motto
“TOTO strives to create a great company that is trusted by people around the world and to contribute to the betterment of society.” The TOTO Philosophy
