Luigi Colani -
Above and beyond Bio-design, amid the upheaval of a post-industrial society and its search for new landmarks and signs, Luigi Colani has invented an entirely original field: the design of a free man (comprehensive monograph).
“We evolve on a round planet, all that surrounds us is curvilinear. Therefore I don't see why we should detach ourselves from our environment, hiding behind straight lines and sharp corners that correspond to nothing. I've come to a pretty certain conclusion: Nature sculpts perfect designs. I've spent months observing nature. ”
