Lapee is founded on the vision of giving women better peeing conditions when toilets are pressured. As both guests and architects for various festivals, the founders have over time observed how it is usually a true nightmare for women when it comes to pee. The choice is usually between insanely long queues for the toilets or the improvised solution such as bush, which is very degrading, unhygienic and unsafe.
Behind Lapee are Gina (FR) and Alexander (DK). They are both educated architects from the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen from spring 2017.
Gina and Alexander have worked together as friends and colleagues since their studies, both as student workers at the architecture office COBE and as volunteer architects for Roskilde Festival. And it was precisely through this voluntary work, as both installation designers and area planners for Roskilde Festival, that the two got the idea for what today has become the company Lapee.
From an early design stage Lapee was thought for women, events, rental companies and the industry.
Lapee is simply the female version of the popular gray kros urinal also called “rocket” or “tulip” which is world wide distributed. It is made in the same manufacturing process, it is being transported, maintained and cleaned in the same way. Moreover, Lapee is stackable, to reduce carbon emissions due to transportation.
