The dream mobiles of Luigi Colani

Luigi Colani is a German industrial designer who has been rethinking the future since the ’40s.  His vision is a rather rounded, streamlined one, and it has been applied to just about everything from kitchens and spacecrafts to cars/trucks and furniture.  Most people call him a designer, but he calls himself a “3-D philosopher.”

“The earth is round, all the heavenly bodies are round; they all move on round or elliptical orbits,” Colani once said. “…I am going to pursue Galileo Galilei’s philosophy: my world is also round.”  So here’s to a rounder world of the future …

Colani was also the designer to some pretty incredible objects for kids.  His designs were meant to be sat on and used, just as much as they were created to be played with!
