The prime characteristic of his designs are the rounded, organic forms, which he terms "biodynamic" and claims are ergonomically superior to traditional designs. His "kitchen satellite" from 1969 is the most prominent example of this school of thought. Many of his designs for small appliances are being mass-produced and marketed, but his larger designs have not been built, "a whole host of futuristic concepts that will have us living in pods and driving cars so flat that leg amputation is the only option."

The earth is round, all the heavenly bodies are round; they all move on round or elliptical orbits. This same image of circular globe-shaped mini worlds orbiting around each other follows us right down to the microcosmos. We are even aroused by round forms in species propagation related eroticism. Why should I join the straying mass who want to make everything angular? I am going to pursue Galileo Galilei's philosophy: my world is also round. — Luigi Colani.

His unconventional designs have made him famous, not only in design circles, but also to the general public. He has received numerous design awards.

Colani currently resides in Karlsruhe, Germany.

In part 2 of the http://www.vernissage.tv feature about the Luigi Colani retrospective at the Design Museum London, curator Dr. Albrecht Bangert explains the concept behind the exhibition. Luigi Colani: Translating Nature is divided into three parts: water, air and land. When the visitor enters the exhibition space, he immerses into a water world which invites him to discover the world of organic design of Luigi Colani. Design Museum London, May 17, 2007. Part 2/3.
