Comprising two designers and one architect, the team asserts a global approach, not restricting themselves to one scale, method, or discipline. Sensitive to forms and materials, Numéro 111 above all observes everyday life, questioning surroundings and suggesting communal creations, established from shared thoughts and styles. Each project attempts to closely interlink the design and manufacturing process. The Numéro 111 office convenes around various projects, with objects, furniture, architecture, interior design and scenography as scope.

“Hugo Sigaud, a young talent with a ‘cool’ vision about brazilian design, without exotic accent” – Beto Cocenza, BoomSPdesign curator
”The brazilian who charges the youngest designer of the country status has already studied Industrial Design and now faces Architecture & Urbanism at Belas Artes school, at Sao Paulo. A legitimate representative of the Y generation.” – Kaza magazine, Brazil, 2013
“How old is required for a designer to become a designer? Review your concepts if you thought of some number to answer this question. Hugo Sigaud, brazilian, is already in the market. Intricacy in discribing the method of production comes from a (good) custom of this designer: the affinity of putting their hands dirty. ‘I like to go to the factory and have contact with suppliers’, he says. With Sigaud there is no crisis at an early age about what to do with the future. ‘It’s all very recent’, referring to the success he already has, ‘but creating is a necessity of mine. Besides living with people and processes and fit it all in my own words.’ We support.” – Construir Magazine, Brazil, 2013
