Burn-me piece

 BURN-ME PIECE ⋅ MARTÍ GUIXÉ ⋅ GRAND HORNU EXPOSITION ⋅ 2008   

 

I like Martí Guixé because his work always triggers some sort of reflection. Often in his projects there is a reference to a "Vanishing act", meaning with this that the designed product is meant to disappear at the end of the use, or even during the use it self (in this way the user is sometimes faced to the choice between keeping the product or using it). After all Burn-me pieces are simple wood-blocks meant to be burned.
