Spanish designer Martí Guixé has the greatest website, "brilliantly simple and curiously serious" indeed. Among his many creations are the Plant-Me-Pets, weird squeaky toys that can also be planted to grow vegetables. They come in tomato, melon, and pumpkin, but tell me, how could you really bear to bury the poor critters? It's exactly the kind of ambivalence Guixé seeks to engender: emotion or function? You decide.
