Yuliia Caliskan is the founder and creative designer behind the NOT BASIC sustainable interior design studio. What once started as a humble idea to reuse and recycle a pickle jar, fast evolved into a real passion and a new vision for home decoration. Each item is carefully designed, thus no two pieces are ever the same.

“I believe sustainability is a meaningful lifetime journey, not a destination. In fact, we can reduce, reuse and recycle so many materials around us, building healthy, beautiful and personalised environment. With that in mind, we create limited editions, each tells its story, each story is an extraordinary experience. And I hope we inspire people to introduce our one-of-a-kind design pieces into their sustainable lifestyle”, - Yuliia Caliskan.

NOT BASIC is a young growing team of likeminded people, who share the same passion for sustainability and unique interior design.
