Raindrops · The Lotus Effect …

… what we can learn from nature

In some Asian religions, the lotus plant is revered as a symbol of purity. The roots of the lotus plant take hold in the muddy bottoms of ponds and riverbeds. From there, thick stems rise above the water’s surface and issue giant, pristine leaves and flowers. The leaves remain clean despite the water and mud on which they rest. Even water is unable to stick to the leaves of the lotus plant. It, however beads on the surface and rolls off at the slightest disturbance.

Inspired by nature, the self-cleaning superhydrophobic products being engineered today are destined to become important and novel products in our everyday lives like treatments, coatings, paints, roof tiles, fabrics and other surfaces that can stay dry and clean themselves by replicating in a technical manner the self-cleaning properties of plants, such as the lotus plant. We are very thankful for the opportunity to collaborate with Chris on this 3rd wonderful silver coin with XXL Relief with the effect of vintage printing. This series will certainly be continued ……
