bd presents versatile designer Martí Guixé in Madrid

Martí Guixé is one of the clearest examples of the designer-cum-artist, or vice-versa. His work is known in Catalonia, Holland, Italy, Germany, United States, etc. and bd has now brought him to Madrid. Born in 1964, he divides his time between Barcelona and Berlin. In 1985 he won the INFAD interior design medal and in 1999, the City of Barcelona Design Prize. He is also the creator/ inventor of shoe manufacturer Camper’s stores in London, New York and Milan. He is currently working on projects for Vitra, considering designing a restaurant in Barcelona and waiting for a book on his work to come out in Holland. Martí Guixé will be showing his work at bd (Galería bd, Villanueva 5, Madrid) from 11 December to 10 January. An excellent opportunity to savour his unique talent.
