Handsome Co. is a multi disciplinary design firm from Hong Kong. Founded in 2009. They started off by repurposing upholstery from Hong Kong taxis as bags and wallets. From there they've done everything from re-branding a traditional tailor shop to turning an iconic Hong Kong tram into a restaurant. Handsome co work in a sleek, minimal style and like turning the mundane into the sublime, employing local craftspeople with years of experience.
Handsome Co believe it should be implicit that all designers have considered the environment when deciding what materials to use, how to manufacture and what will happen to their product when it reaches the end of its life cycle. Their philosophy is that the environment should be a key factor in the design process for each and every product that gets made, even though this is something that typically falls by the wayside in the interest of profit and the bottom line.
