Latvian designer Kaspars Jursons may have created something that will solve numerous problems that plague people all over the world.

The problems? Figuring out ways to not waste water, not having enough space, and men not washing their hands after they pee.

You may be wondering, “how the hell can these three things be related?” That’s why you aren’t Kaspars Jursons, who figured out how to solve all three of these issues with a single invention. Meet the sink-urinal.

The sink-urinal is… exactly that. The top component is a sink, while the bottom half is a urinal.

Coming in an array of pleasant colors, the sink-urinal will help alleviate water shortages in Europe.

“It’s not just a fancy piece of art,” Jursons says. “The idea is about function and consumption. You are washing your hands in the sink on top of the urinal, and the same water that’s running is also used to flush. You don’t have to use water twice, like when you use the urinal and wash your hands in separate sink.”

The water you wash your hands with runs down into the urinal component and flushes away the urine.

The tiny structure, called “Stand,” sells for approximately $590 per unit. We’re not urinal experts, but to have a sink and a urinal for that price? Sounds like a bargain! Plus, think of all the money you’ll save on your water bill.

The Stand isn’t being mass-produced yet, but small production runs are being made and they’re being sold to buyers in Norway, Germany, Russia, Poland and Jursons’ home country, Latvia.

The best part? It basically leaves you no choice but to wash your hands.

“It is more suitable for hygiene than just a urinal and then guys who don’t wash [their] hands.”

Never again worry about having to shake the hand of someone who just left the bathroom!

The ladies haven’t been forgotten, however, as Jursons is also working on a sink-toilet combo that will help everyone save water.
