After three years in Rio de Janeiro, Margarida and Rui returned to Portugal and created MUSGO. In their studio, in an old cowshed since restored, they design a host of pieces of furniture, primarily focusing their efforts on lamps. The wood they use comes from restoration work on old Portuguese houses, such as beams, doors, windows, flooring and roof structures. And, in partnership with the University of Aveiro, they also use eco-cement as a pioneering and innovative material in design. Besides the care taken in the selection of materials, including organic varnishes, they boost local production, the craftmanship and the livelihood of professions that are falling out of favour. MUSGO believes that with each step and choice it makes, it is walking towards appreciation and respect for people and the planet.
