The presentation is based on relevant topics on the work of Martí Guixé, including:

Edible objects: can be designed with parameters such as ergonomics, functionality, and usability.
Performance: presenting design objects means exhibiting the object. It is not about the picture of it.
Interaction: objects communicate; the interaction is one of the characteristics of today's interfaces, as part of a kind of collaborative action between object and subject.
Instruction: most of the designed objects are from a new typology and need a new ritual and instruction on using it.
New typology: objects that create new perceptions of the real.
Business models: these models perform a holistic vision of the project, the object, the interior of the surrounding, the ritual and the conceptual context.
Recent: recent projects referred to exhibits and experimental contexts.of the book collection Unevaluated Essays, Corraini Edizioni.
