Materials Reimagined. Designed to Inspire.

Smile Plastics is a materials design and manufacturing house creating hand crafted, supersized panels for retail, architecture, interiors and product design.

The materials in our Classics Collection are 100% recycled and recyclable, made from would-be waste, such as discarded chopping boards, cosmetics bottles and yogurt pots. Each sustainable material has been tried and tested in a wide range of applications.
