Food Design was first presented in the Galeria H2O Barcelona in 1997 with Martí Guixé: SPAMT. Food Design considers food as an edible designed product, an object that negates any reference to cooking, tradition and gastronomy. Guixé as Food Designer builds edible products that are ergonomic, functional, communicative, interactive and visionary but also radically contemporary and timeless.
