The urinal is the thing on your left (the LOW porcelain fixture). The sink is on the right (the HIGH porcelain fixture). The similarity of design of the two, while aesthetically ideal, is kinda... scary.

even clicking on it doesn't help. the urinal is of course cut off from view by the privacy wall, but all I see of the sink is the lip of it..

however in viewing it while I replied to this, I can actually see two sinks now, and one of them does have the faucets in question.

Now, that does bring up the question though, The only time I remember seeing any types of faucets on a toilet were on bidets, although those sinks would never be confused with a bidet.. or at least I'd hope they wouldn't.. lol

No. Only the ones in upmarket buildings come with taps (faucets) and a mirror.

I'm lucky I'm 1.85m tall (6' 1"). Short people have to stand on tippy toes to pee in the sink :mrgreen:
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

I'm 189cm tall and will never forget the experience of stopping off at a truck stop somewhere in Texas and having to stand on my tippy toes.....to pee in the urinal. Some Texans take that "Everything's bigger in Texas" crap entirely too seriously.
Never underestimate my capacity for pettiness.
