Before continue I just want to make a little background of why rounded shapes are important in the design and how our brain percepits them. There're a lot of studies citing the rounded shapes in design and I don't want to annoying anyone with all of them, but just two or three articles I think are worth a quick read, for example this one from the Smithsonian Magazine: Do Our Brains Find Certain Shapes More Attractive Than Others?

A new exhibition in Washington, D.C., claims that humans have an affinity for curves — and there is scientific data to prove it. "Shallow convex surface curvature is characteristic of living organisms, because it is naturally produced by the fluid pressure of healthy tissue (e.g. muscle) against outer membranes (e.g. skin). The brain may have evolved to process information about such smoothly rounded shapes in order to guide survival behaviors like eating, mating and predator evasion. In contrast, the brain…
