Special adaption hardware should be ordered with the urinal. You will need to buy a flush unit which applies to the rules and regulations of your country.

Meike van Schijndel
"The Bathroom Mania! series was my final project in 2000 at the Utrecht School of Arts (KHU), major Illustration. My father (who was an architect and designer) passed away in September 1999, at the beginning of my final year. This made me want to combine the design world I grew up with, with my studies in illustration.
The bathroom in the year 2000 was no longer a purely functional space and that’s why I wanted to introduce color and imagination into these overall white bathrooms. The Bathroom Mania designs create a fantasy world in the bathroom: flowery freshness with the flowerpot-toilet ‘Good Morning Sunshine’ (water daily!); a refreshing shower in the beach-hut shower ‘Summertime’; drifting off into tropical relaxation in the hammock bath ‘Splish Splash’ and a touch of sensuality with the urinal ‘Kisses’. Kisses was the last design of the series and the only product that is currently in production."
.what were you thinking?
"There have been a lot of discussions about this urinal. Kisses is made as an art-piece with a wink to reality. The thought that this urinal only represents a man wanting to pee into a woman's mouth never occurred to me. Call me naïve, but to me, Kisses is nothing more than a cartoonist mouth; the red lips are the metaphor for sensuality.
The truth lies in the eyes of the beholder. I personally don’t see any harm in the design, however I do realize that some people find it offensive and may link it to much larger issues. Obviously it’s a discussion that will never end. Personally I rather spend my time doing positive things to make this world a better place."
