The original source of life.
A Word from the manufacturer: The principles of our designs.
Our quest for the most energizing and harmonious design principle has lead us to the proportions of the Golden Ratio, which are, quite literally, Nature’s Design, and to the powerful symbol of the Flower of Life.
Years ago, when we first saw Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto’s pictures of water crystals, showing the difference Intention makes on the structure of water, we were very impressed.
What fascinated us at Nature’s Design most, was the positive change of the water’s structure, which arises from the conscious use of forms which are in harmony with the design principle of the natural world. Since then, a fascination with water and form has stayed with us.
And that is what Nature’s Design stands for today elegant, close to nature, and helpful products of quality for everyday use – and for the well-being of the body, the mind, and the soul.
The Water’s Journey
Anyone who has ever taken a drink from a mountain stream knows from experience the virtues of fresh spring water. At home, the water coming from the tap is no longer as tasty or as energizing. No wonder, when you think of the long distances, the processing, and the environmental pollution that the water has been subjected to on its journey to you.
In order to document “visually”, how deeply the products alter the structure of water, before-and-after photographs are taken of water crystals from all products. Test results come from the E. F. Braun laboratory in Uttingen, Switzerland. All water samples (like the ones on the right) were photographed using the procedure developed by Masuru Emoto.
Every sample taken from the products shows highly-positive alterations with very fine, symmetrical crystalline structures. These changes, created and supported by our design components (Golden Ratio, Flower of Life, carefully-selected materials), give the water a fresh, agreeable, unadulterated, and natural flavor, as close to nature as you can get.
The Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci series.
Since antiquity, the underlying proportions of the Golden Ratio have served as the epitome of beauty and aesthetics. Even today, this perfect proportion can be found in art, in architecture, in design, and elsewhere. The Golden Ratio is evident everywhere in nature, which is why we use it as the guiding principle in the design of our products.
It stems from the equality of proportions, when the relationship between the larger and the smaller part is the same as that between the whole and the larger part. This ratio, this formula (the phi number in mathematics) is 1.618.
The Fibonacci sequence of numbers is based on this same principle. It describes the characteristics of growth processes found in nature, e.g. in the leaf and flower position of plants. This occurs, i.e. in left and right handed spirals with a ratio of 8 to 13, or 21 to 34 (all numbers in the Fibonacci sequence). When dividing these numbers, the result is always 1.618, which is known as “Phi” or the Golden Ratio.
All glass and porcelain products are carefully conceived in accordance with the Golden Ratio, making every piece genuinely pleasing to the eye and energetically in alignment with the flow of life force energy.
The Flower of Life: Prototype for Creation.
This powerful symbol – another expression of what is some-times referred to as “Sacred Geometry”, is found in many cultures and religions – and also in the products. And for good reason. In its simple beauty and perfection, it is a symbol for the perpetual process of creation and, in the process, contributes to the harmonious reorganization or “structuring” of water.
The Flower of Life consists of numerous overlapping circles. The starting point is the circle in the center. Represented in this circle is a basic, geometrical structure, which reveals that originally, all life sprang from a single source. Keyword: cell division. Cell division proceeds until every creature has achieved its appropriate and harmonious form.
As this symbol is utilized in products, water held in these products remembers this “original code” through the influence of the Flower of Life. Water once again arranges itself symmetrically as it corresponds to its basic structure, the hexagon. And this same, original, hexagonal form is found in the Flower of Life!
