The 7th Congress of the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID), organised by the Agrupació de Disseny Industrial del Foment de les Arts Decoratives (ADI/FAD), was held in Eivissa (Ibiza) from 14–16 October 1971. What might have been a conventional professional meeting became, in the Spanish context, an unprecedented event. For three days, what the ICSID did in Eivissa was not just an open congress where professionals and students could meet and debate; it was a point of convergence between design and the most experimental forms of art and architecture at the time in Spain.

For the realization of this video were interviewed Daniel Giralt Miracle, art critic and member of ICSID 1971; industrial designers Enric Franch, Jordi Mañà and André Ricard; the philosopher Xavier Rubert de Ventós; designers Joan Antoni Blanc and Lluís Pau; architects Carlos Ferrater, Raimon Torres and José Miguel de Prada Poole; the shopkeeper Fernando Amat; the economist Santi Ponseti; the film director Bigas Luna; the urban planner and writer Luis Racionero and Jordi Pericot, professor emeritus at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
