Last century, there were geographical areas of the planet that lived disconnected from each other and Portuguese adventurers created connections that enriched the world. The GAGO chair honours the first aerial crossing of the South Atlantic realized by Sacadura Cabral and Gago Coutinho in 1922. Inspired by the shape of the aviator’s helmet and with arms elegantly curved like the wings of a seaplane, the GAGO’s upholstery rests on a platform of turned wood inspired in the hydroplane floaters, giving users the impression of taking off on an adventure. On its back is the inscription “1922, 8383 km”, recording this milestone of the aeronautics that linked Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro. GAGO travels through spaces of familiar conviviality or metropolitan agitation, making each place memorable.




Graduated in Design from the University of Aveiro, Joana Santos and Hugo Silva are the resident Designers. Their areas of intervention include equipment, graphic and web interface design and they develop integrated Design solutions, involving strategic thinking, technology and identity.

Joana has a special taste for graphic design and craftwork and her work process has always a practical approach. Hugo does not relieve the sketchbook and seeks inspiration in the everyday things to his drawings. Together, they develop narratives and explore emotions through colours, forms, technologies and materials. The result are products with more than what meets the eye – each piece has its singular details, its own story and an ecological approach.
