One of the most influential designers of the past half-century, Luigi Colani, is the subject of an exhibition at the Design Museum in London (in 2007). With a career spanning almost six decades, Colani has applied his unique design style to produce cars, trucks, boats, aircraft, ceramics and consumer goods, as well as creating futuristic concepts for as-yet unrealized transport systems and architecture. There are Colani tea pots, mineral water bottles and sun glasses, but much of his work remains in the form of dream-like models or photographic montages. While operating firmly outside the mainstream of the automotive design industry, Colani’s work has had a huge influence on automotive designers. CDN met with Colani in London, where he explained his design philosophy.
