SPD alumnus, Martí Guixé comes from the background of every good designer but he revolutionizes design by working on living matter to transform and decompose, hybridizing such areas as anthropology, humour, gastronomy, typography, human sciences, exact sciences, design, performance. He analyses situations, behaviour and gestures and proposes radically effective solutions with minimal ergonomics, liberated from the image of an idealized body where technocratic perspective tried to create the right form. As a visionary he transforms things with his eyes that observe them and invents the indispensable commodities of the twenty-first century.
