A Place To Talk - An Introduction

This is Luis De Oliveira founder of De La Espada and host of ‘A Place To Talk’, a series of conversations that take us to new places. Starting out with no formal hidden agenda, we talk to our guest and engage our listeners, by going with the flow we walk in digressions and new turns. We’ve reached out to wide range of people representing different points of view within the design world. As an industry, we are often seen as self-referencial rather than inclusive. In this moment in time, defined by the broad sharing of ideas through new channels, we saw the opportunity to create honest dialogs. We aim for nothing more than a breath of fresh air, some humour and hopefully some good ideas to enrich the conversations. So sit down, and let us take you to new places.
