Basic Design

Basic Design is a local design firm redefining the value of waste by giving a second life to landfill-bound materials and creating unique products, furniture and spaces. In addition to its upcycled product lines, the company works collaboratively with clients to co-create their vision using reclaimed, local and sustainable materials. Lupii Café and The Capilano Tea House are examples of SFU-linked companies that have consulted with Basic Design for their interior design. Basic Design was a member of the June 2015 RADIUS Trampoline cohort. Basic Design has also launched the Vancouver Trash Lab, an initiative aimed at educating participants about upcycling, design processes and closed-loop systems.
