Ross Lovegrove , London :
"Colani’s place is secured as perhaps the most influential form visionary of the twentieth century in the field of industrial design. He has created dreams that push the limits of our perception of space and technological possibility to the edge of the Earth’s stratosphere, and as the world of industrial design sought safety and acceptance through restraint he just kept blowing minds with the fusion of art and organic design. He remains ever relevant, connecting man to machine in the most profoundly utopian of ways.
Seeing his work at the age of fifteen made all possible for me because I realized that instinct is far more powerful than logic as the starting point for all new possibilities in our evolving world. Now, thirty years later, the incredible heart and soul of this man, who has created by hand and eye such an immense body of work, continues to inspire me as a friend and fellow techno-anthropomorphic believer lost in space but always supporting the potential of man."
