On the Salone del Mobile we had the great pleasure to meet Marti Guixe on the Danese booth, where he showed his Xarxa chair - a seat, made of 5 different pillows of different materials and characteristics, but united together, so that you can use it as a bed, a sofa or a chair, depending on the position, order and sequence you arrange the pillows taking in this way a quantic behaviour. The self-proclaimed ex-designer gave us an interesting insight into his take on where design is currently at and where it should be going. This video is part of a series of interviews that we conducted during the Milan design week, the so-called Post Futurist Manifesto Talks.

Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
