Last year, we featured WC1, a public powder room that had opened on London’s Oxford Street. A place where, for GBP 5, stressed out shoppers and women on their way to a meeting or to dinner can relax, revive and be pampered. A recent spotting from Japan shows that this new business idea is spreading. Angelbe, which opened in December 2006, is a powder room operated by the West Japan Railway Company and located in Osaka’s main railway station. Like WC1, the space was designed to resemble a lounge, with chandeliers, soft curves and gentle lighting.
