If there was an award for world''s coolest designer, Luigi Colani, with his signature moustache and trademark stogie, would win it hands down every year. Colani has been making bio-morphic streamlined products ever since he graduated from the Sorbonne, in 1953, with a degree in aerodynamics. He has designed everything from cameras and watches to cars and motorcycles. His visionary studies for supersonic transit, high-speed trains, aerodynamic sports equipment, eyewear, and just about everything else have dramatically altered our designed environment. His ultra progressive design patrons include BMW, Canon, Mazda, NEC, Rosenthal, Sony, VW, and Zeiss.

This magnificent volume, beautifully produced with hundreds of drawings and photos, showcases for the first time his wide-ranging oeuvre in the context of international design history. Also, it''s just, well, incredibly cool.
