A Call Of Nature For Air Travellers At Arlanda
Travellers caught short while arriving at or departing from Sweden’s Arlanda airport will be answering a call of nature in more ways than one.
The airport’s newly designed men’s toilets in Terminal 5 will feature a wall of glass above and around the urinals instead of the usual tiling, which according to the designer, will eradicate the foul smells which often eminate from the gaps between the tiles.
The glass has artwork on it portraying a flower-filled Swedish meadow. Not to be left out, the ladies room comes with glass artworks in the shape of giant red buttercups.
The new lavatories are part of an 800-square-meter extension of Terminal 5, which also includes new shops. Arlanda, Sweden’s main airport, handles 25 million passengers a year.
