Furniture designs developed entirely from upcycled source material.




INTD 3310: Interior Design

City of Vancouver:

  • Vancouver Economic Commission


  • Greenest City Action Plan

City goal area:

  • Zero Waste


In collaboration with the Upcycled Design Project and the Vancouver Economic Commission, students in BCIT’s Materials and Environmental Factors course led by Dixie Hudson and Wayne DeAngelis developed furniture designs from entirely upcycled source material. From side tables to chairs, stools to rugs, the students demonstrated how design can transform objects previously seen as garbage into objects of beauty and function. These projects were shared with the Upcycled Design community and inspired the students to rethink materials and waste in future projects.
