Biddus

PRESENTED ON OCT 31, 2013
IN VALLADOLID @ VOL 3

Biddus es la evolución de una sensación de rebeldía sobre el poder, o más bien la falta de poder, del consumidor de a pie.

Dimos forma a la sensación y la transformamos en idea. Y la idea es hoy un sueño, una empresa, es esfuerzo e ilusión, para mí, es sobre todo la determinación de intentar crear algo donde no había nada.

Pessoa e Companhia

BY DAVID KONG
IN LISBON

"Ao entrar no Espaço Pessoa e Companhia, não está a visitar nem uma livraria, nem uma galeria de exposições, nem um café de bairro.
Está sobretudo a descobrir um pequeno refúgio do tamanho do mundo. Um lugar onde habitam a arte e a poesia, a música e a literatura, a ciência, a filosofia e a história."
