One thing that modern designers could agree on, is that the human eye is designed for organic shapes. That can only be true if you dare to take a look at the beauty that our surrounding nature is sharing with us.
The same emotion that nature gives us with its shapes, has inspired designers from Mercedes in creating this sublime shape. In their search for the perfect shape and functionality they came up with this touching design, trying to capture the essence and calm of the interior design.The light and strong, organic frame painted in alubeam Liquid Metal is continued in ivory looking like seating and measures 5.6 x 1.83 x 2.6 meters at a 1.5 to 1 scale.
The whole sculpture comes as testimony to what the future line of design at Mercedes is going to look like.
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
