Item description for Luigi Colani by Bruce Mehly...

Since the 1950s, designer Luigi Colani has changed the face of our culture with his designs for automobiles, aircraft, motorcycles, furniture, bathroom appliances, cameras and other electronic equipment, computers, and jewelry. Working in Europe, the United States and Japan, Colani has worked with relentless verve to create designs that reflect the genius of the natural world--as he has put it: ''I do no more than imitate the truths revealed to me by nature.'' Educated in both art and engineering, Colani's innovative designs are born from a deep understanding of ergonomics and aerodynamics--of how bodies interact with their environments and with other bodies--but they also resound with a playfulness and beauty often missing in high-tech design. This gorgeous new volume highlights the best of Colani's half-century career in design, including such trendsetters as the Colani Alfa, the Mazda MX-5, the Drop teapot, his headphones for the Sony Walkman, and the Canon T-90, among numerous others.

Reviews - What do customers think about Luigi Colani?

A disappointing and brief biography of Luigi Colani  Sep 12, 2002
I had high expectations of the book, as not many books have been written about the inventor of "bio-design". But I was rather disappointed. The first section is a very brief review of Luigi Colani's life, and describes some of his designs. The second half of the book is cobbled together from three interviews done over a number of years. There are no real new insights into the man behind the all the bravado and rhetoric.
The translation into English from the original French was not very well done. There are numerous spelling mistakes and errors. There are black and white photographs in the main text, but many of these are poorly reproduced. The colour photographs at the rear of the book are small and few in number; this is a great pity as Colani is famous for his many flamboyant designs. There are better books about Luigi Colani and his designs than this one.
