Look at this late-Retrofuture domestic concept: the “Kitchen Satellite”. The design is by Luigi Colani, a man with an Italian-sounding name who is a German of Kurdish descent.

As an industrial designer, Colani knew what the public wanted in a kitchen: terrifically cramped, orange, plastic, and spherical. Inexplicably, this didn’t catch on.

I bet there’s a tiny cabinet in there somewhere with a canister of Tang.
