“BiCA*, as the first coffee drunk together in Lisbon, followed by many others in Milan. Long, short, with a drop of milk, in a mug”.
Alice Azario, architect and interior, tell us about the beginning of her project BiCA-Good Morning Design, a female reality of self-made design, born inside a digital fabrication lab in Milan, contradicting the common belief that labs, tools and technology are worlds only for men. The brand combines innovative systems, traditional handmade quality with a touch of romantic poetry.
* bica: in Portuguese, “expresso coffee”
