Spanish designer Martí Guixé (1964) initially worked as an architect. He designs projects, focuses on ideas, functions and systems that are relevant for the 21st century. Guixé’s ideas often seem hilarious. For example Functional Tattoos, with a very useful ruler printed on one’s index finger. Or the I-cake: the diagram pictured on the cake provides information about the ingredients. Decoration becomes information. Guixé specialises in food design, immaterial design, performance design and design that deals with complexity, interaction and communication.
In the 2007 exhibition ‘Designing Critical Design’ a work of Guixé was displayed, namely Car Mirror. In this mirror you could see yourself sitting in your car. In 2008 other of Guixé’s works were shown in Z33 as part of ‘Werk Nu’, about the idea and interpretation of “work” in present society.
