Martí Guixé

Guixé Guixé's notebook is filled with sketches of possible new interior designs, giving the observer a glimpse of the artist creative process.

Living between Berlin and Barcelona where he was Born in 1964, Martí Guixé studied interior design there and then industrial design at Milan Polytechnic. After working as a design consultant in Seoul during the mid-1990s, he began a long collaboration with Camper, the Spanish shoe retailer, in 1998 by designing its store in London. He has since designed Camper stores all over the world developing a distinctive design for each one within the same visual language of anarchic illustrations and anti-materialistic slogans on its packaging such as "If you don't need it, don't buy it" on Camper's bags. The same anarchic humor is reflected in the rest of Guixé's work: from rolls of sticky tape printed with images of an ornate picture frame or of footballs so that the tape can be rolled up to form a ball. He define himself as a Problem solver and object stylist carrying on a system which eliminate the form of the project to design it as pure function. Recent exhibitions include: Park Life, Centre d'Art la Panera, Lleida, Forever Bau-Haus, Marta Herford in 2009 and in 2008 Claska room 00, Tokyo, Sculpt me point, Amsterdam, Pfic Bar Torino, Open-end, Grand-Hornu.
