Re: Oscar Niemeyer in Star Trek

Those parabolic arches and curved star shapes are iconic of 1960s design, probably because they suggest flight or the trajectory of a rocket -- an emblem of the dawn of the Space Age.

They showed up in furniture, wallpaper and tile patterns, and set design for TV shows.
