People prefer curved objects over sharp cornered ones

In Multiple research it has been found that people prefer curvy objects over sharp corners. The rationale is that objects with sharper corners may convey a sense of threat at non conscious level. 

In this research  people were exposed to 140 pairs of similar objects and the major difference between them was curvature of their contour. 

The participants liked the curved objects more than the sharply cornered ones.

Also research on car interior designs suggests that curved designs are preferred to straight designs
