I am analysing a time series and all the variables are stationary using augmented Dickey–Fuller test (ADF). Does it make sense to test for co-integration in stationary series?

No, cointegration occurs when two series have the same stochastic trend. In order to have a stochastic trend, they should be nonstationary. Stationary variables do not have a trend. You can perform standard inference.
