- Vicent Martínez, the star of the show
If there was one thing that attracted attention in this show it was the photo of Vicent Martínez, which greeted visitors to the design pavilions by way of an anteroom to his exhibition. “Vicent Martínez, a present continuous” represented a journey through some of his milestones as a designer, passing through memory, the present and unpublished. Memory, which dates from 1982 to 1997, covered the designs of tables for Punt Mobles, Grupo T bookcases, the Montjüic armchair (Arflex Martínez Medina), and La Literatura, one of the great classics in the history of Spanish design.
In the recent section, the designer showed his latest pieces, those he has developed between 2012 and 2022. The redesign of La Literatura, the armchair of the “Weave” collection for Point, the Isa chair and Libris tables (Capdell) and the Ilius sofa (for Ofifran), as well as his work related to the world of fans.
Unpublished was the last part of the exhibition, where he showed some of the designs, elaborations and projects that have yet to arrive, some of them still prototypes.
