Bathroom Blogfest 2016: Umm, How/Where Do I Flush?

You’ve finished your business and now you’re ready to flush. The questions are how and where. flush

It looks like the PUSH button is for a possible door, but it turns out that’s where you push to flush. It’s labelled (sorta) but still rather confusing. I guess one can argue that if it said push to flush, it would be more clear. However, many times, when the design of something is flawed, having signage just simply masks or somewhat alleviates the real (design) issue at hand.
