Beyond the Beyond
Luigi Colani is a sculptor, painter, flight engineer, technical designer and city planner by occupation, but aerodynamicists, 3-D and form philosopher from passion.
A Colani Design Centre with a large Colani Research Centre was opened in Karlsruhe, Germany, in April 2002. His automobile, industrial and furniture designs have won many coveted prizes all over the world.
He is currently professor at the Tong-Ji University, in Shanghai.
Colani was my hero when I was in artschool in the Seventies. With him teaching in Shanghai I am keeping my eyes peeled for a Chinese design revolution.
