Q&A with Designer Martí Guixé

Designer Martí Guixé is well known for his conceptual food design and ex-designer approach as well as commercial projects like Camper sneaker shops. We met with Guixé at Design Indaba, where he last spoke a decade ago, when Flash was all the rage. "At that time, all the people were new media," he recalls. "For me it's strange that after 10 years, I came with the same work, just older. It's a pleasure that the work is still current." His new book, Transition Menu, is forthcoming in English and Italian from Corraini.
