Martí Guixé _ Bicycle Book

There is a bicycle to suit every taste, moment and circumstance: robust mountain bikes for climbing on the crest of a hill and functional folding bikes for pedalling around town, racing bicycles for speeding along the pavements of Flanders and bold BMXs to carry out impossible stunts, streamlined track bikes and small Graziellas perfect for a trip to the park on a spring afternoon…

It would be fantastic to have them all, but perhaps it’s just as nice to want them, to imagine them, without having to find space in the garage for such a vast collection. That’s why Martí Guixé proposes this new funny, ironic do-it-yourself book: two wheels on each page and the freedom to imagine and draw your own models, like a modern Leonardo Da Vinci…

Martí Guixé was born in Barcelona in 1964. He studied Interior Design in Barcelona and then Industrial Design at the Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milan. He lives and works “on living matter” between Barcelona and Berlin, devoting himself to inventing “brilliantly simple ideas of curious significance”; a self-designated “ex-designer”, he works for such companies as Camper, Chupa-Chups, Desigual, Droog Design, Saporiti and Watx. His work has been exhibited at MoMA, New York, the London Museum of Design, MACBA in Barcelona and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
