Born in 1964, Martí Guixé is a Catalonian designer living in Barcelona and Berlin. He graduated in interior design from Elisava in Barcelona in 1985 and studied industrial design at Scuola Politecnica di Design di Milano in 1986.
In 1994, living in Berlin, he formulated a new way to understand the culture of products. Guixé started to exhibit his work in 1997, work that is characterised by a search for new product systems, the introduction of design in food ambits and presentation through performance. His non-conventional gaze provides brilliant and simple ideas of a curious seriousness.
