Reflecting on the Thai Toilets of Pukk and Peep

Its no secret that Thais are fly Thai restaurants are generally outfitted with more bells and whistles than Santa Claus directing traffic. The interior design is especially crispy in the bathrooms (see Sea), and the ones at sister eateries Pukk and Peep are no exception. We visited them both for some very chic leaks.

Peep
Concept: The door is a one-way mirror; you can look out, but diners cant see in.
Privacy: Flip the bird to anyone who approaches the door and tries to push it open. They wont see.
Amenities: Ceiling speakers, an illuminated Buddha backed by infinity mirrors, and a video screen over the sink.
Drawbacks: The doors are inconveniently wedged between diners tables.
Strategy: Were not saying to make creative use of the sink so you dont miss any of the movie, but

What the Pukk?Photo: Daniel Maurer


Pukk

Concept: Byzantine delicateness via slate walls and gilded foil trim.

Privacy: A transparent strip at the top of the frosted-glass door means you spend your entire toilet time worrying Xiao Ming will walk by.

Amenities: The sink's faucet and toggle project from a mirrored wall. And ceiling speakers, natch.

Drawbacks: Inconvenient placement at the end of the narrow restaurant and near the kitchen.

Strategy: The oval basin looks a lot like a toilet lid. Dont try to pick it up you break it, you bought it.
