The name Coperni invokes the life work of Renaissance-era astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, whose mathematical and astronomical research into Heliocentrism inspires the designers’ visual world. 

Copernicus is considered as one of the greatest genius of his time, thanks to his theory of the motion of Earth and the planets. In his heliocentric system (known, ever since, as Copernic system), all the planets turn around the Sun, acknowledging the Earth as a planet just like the others.
