“Space is produced by the people who occupy it and influenced by those who design and produce it”
SPACEGRAM is a Lisbon-based studio founded in 2017, that brings together graphic and spatial design to create bold, unexpected spaces and experiences. Its three founding partners – Ana Ferrão, Bruno Pereira, and Gilberto Pedrosa – came together from different creative backgrounds with a shared desire to experiment, evaluate, and then experiment more.
Our combined range of international experience allows us to work across a range of disciplines with a common set of aesthetic values and an expanding catalog of cutting-edge design techniques. We are motivated by a holistic, exploratory approach to solving design problems – a rejection of conventional boundaries or stylistic paths.
We are passionate, obsessive, and experimental; believing that boldness in design does not equate to ostentation. Instead, we rely on the nuances of color, texture, and simplicity of form to project elegant confidence. Our professional approach is built on a mutual desire to create a studio that functions in a way we would want it to if we were our own clients. For this reason, we treat each brief as though it is our first – unshackling ourselves from expected or recycled design solutions. We offer a harmonized approach not just to building spaces and objects, but to crafting a story around them. We understand that good design lives far beyond ceremonial ribbon-cutting.
Spacegram is therefore dedicated to creating a start-to-finish design service, from practical research to generation of space, to the creation of objects that speak the same language as that space. We offer a fully-fledged experience by uniquely articulating and customizing every detail tied to a project. Our goal is to curate, design, and deliver spatial environments in an experimental and future-driven manner. We work best with risk-taking clients who believe in the power of smart, beautiful, integrated design as much as we do.
