Lotus Leaf / Bathroom Basin

Lotus Leaf
Lotus Leaf

Lotus Leaf is a basin that never gets wetted but keeps being fluffy-dried and hygienic like lotus leaves in a muddy pond for its superhydrophobic surface. The surface features self-purification that the water drop rolling off it along with dirt and dusts stuck on the surface. Lotus Leaf would keep itself neat and tidy, though you pay less attention to cleaning than usual. Everyone would have an unpleasant experience with a drenched basin. And cleaning the basin is a tiresome chore. Lotus Leaf will nicely solve out both these problems and also provide a new experience to see the scene of pure water drops rolling off it like a set of marbles.
