ACAD x Smile Plastics

Smile Plastics x ACAD Modular Seating installation,designed in collaboration with Adrien Cugullière & Arthur Didier – aka ACAD – the customisable piece, which was originally created for Paris Design Week 2021 and reimagined for the Harewood Biennial 2022.With reuse being at the heart of what we do here at Smile, the ACAD Seating was the perfect product for what’s required in the here and now.

“With this chair installation, we wanted to highlight the quality and beauty of Smile Plastics’ upcycled plastics boards. We also wanted to raise the problem of waste in the event industry, proposing to answer it in favouring reuse for ephemeral installations. The basic construction of the furniture allows easy assembly and storage, for various events, both short term and permanent, inside or outside.”

Co-working club Bureau in Greenwich Design District

Roz Barr Architects designed a co-working members' club for London's new design district, featuring a bright red salon, Grey Mist stairs you can sit on, and a workspace that doubles as a dinner table.

Bureau offers a range of co-working and social spaces designed specifically for those working in the creative industries. Architect Roz Barr and her London-based team designed a series of playful interiors for Bureau, hoping to create a distinct identity that offers flexibility to creatives.
