100 years of the Art of Living well


The Japanese have long been known for their minimalistic design principles that carefully consider the harmony between people and nature. This principle is evident in the output of the Japanese creative process – from space-planning and interior designs to their furniture and fixtures – which seamlessly integrate natural light and materials to honor nature and their surrounding environment.

This is the same design philosophy that INAX has been following in manufacturing their products for a century now. As the brand which started sanitaryware production in 1945 and introduced Japan’s first advanced toilet and self-powered automatic faucet, INAX marks this milestone with the theme, 100 years of Thoughtfulness, reflecting an enduring commitment to create products that enable users to live well.

A great example is the shower toilet designed not just to be comfortable and odor-free but is designed without a tank to leave more space around the toilet. This unique bathroom fixture, known as SATIS, was designed following a “human-centric” technology that put careful consideration on the everyday life of its users.

Over the years, INAX has also added a complete range of bathroom products ranging from shower toilets, washbasins & mixers, and shower systems found in the S600 Line which brings about a deeper level of relaxation and tranquility; as well as the S400 Line whose products were designed to reflect the masterful use of light and shadow in the bathroom.

Undoubtedly, the sanitaryware and manufacturing tile brand has come a long way, going through many developments and innovations since it was founded by a family of potters 100 years ago.

Once committed to just producing decorative tiles for the Imperial Hotel designed by renowned Architect Frank Lloyd Wright, INAX has since then expanded to ceramic plumbing fixtures and Sanitarina, the first made-in-Japan shower toilet. These products were produced with the biggest consideration of users in mind. For the Japanese, this means highlighting the significance of water in their lives as they view water as something spiritual, and at the same time, very close and familiar.

So as INAX reaches its 100-year milestone, the leading Japanese sanitaryware brand will offer products with controls that can be used with ease by users with special needs.

While the company has certainly grown over the century, its distinguishable qualities of beauty and unparalleled craftsmanship have remained consistent, and will continue to do so for many years to come to enable everyone to live well.
