  • Q&A with Way Basics Design Studio

    The two most common questons we get at Way Basics are: 1) Can I place my Way Basics furniture on its side? and 2) Can I assembly my Way Basics furniture without the backing board?  We'll address both!

    Question 1) Our products are vertically constructed and when properly oriented can hold a substantial amount of weight.  When these products are placed on their side, the boards that were once vertical (now horizontal) do not have the proper support in order for the product to have a long life.  With proper upright orientation, each shelf has the support of the two boards it is placed upon, which makes the unit strong and stable.  When placed on its side, there is only the adhesive providing support and will fail if weight is placed on the unit when oriented improperly.

    Question 2) The backing board is instrumental to preserving the overall structural integrity of your Way Basics Products.  It acts at a skeleton that provides lasting support for your Way Basics products.  Choosing to not use it will make the product susceptible of collapse.

    Check out this video, which helps to illustrate these questions and answers.

    Way Basics - Recycler 360
  • Casa Surf Project

    10 designers sought out to transform 10 rooms of La Casa Del Camino Hotel from their original state, to a hip and fresh environment in order to spark interest and allow various surf companies to flex their creative muscles.  The ten major companies that sponsored each room include: Roxy, Billabong, Rip Curl, Etnies, Glaceau, Lost, Quicksilver, Billabong Women, L Space, and Riviera. Way Basics had the honor of teaming up with Roxy, Rip Curl and Billabong Women, to add some spice to their rooms!

    It was a long process, but in the end it was definitely worth it.  The rooms are so cool!  Check out these before and after photos of the Roxy room, Rip Curl room, and Billabong Women's room

    The designer for the Rip Curl room, Debbie Nassetta, had a really great idea of sticking a graphic on the backer board so the Cubes would showcase the different elements and feel she wanted in the room.  Great job Debbie!

    The Billabong Women's Room was a huge success as well.  This room is actually a combination of two rooms, with the bed on one side of the room, and the bathroom and living area on the other side.  This room showcased a number of products as well as a couple of the Recycler 360!

    The Roxy Room was another double room with lots of bright colors.  Check out what they did with the Cube Plus Squared!  They added feet to it in order to make it customized!  Remember.. if you choose to customize your Way Basics products by adding hardware, the zBoards can withstand drilling/screws on main surfaces, but steer clear of the edges!  If you have any inquiries about undertaking a project like this, it's best to contact us so we can walk you through the process!
