Form that elevates function
Transcending functional purpose, seating provides a catalyst for creating furniture iconography. Whether it's recycled plastic benches or seats, Smile Plastics offers an unparalleled edge across both style and sustainability to help you achieve your vision.
ACAD x Smile Plastics
Smile Plastics x ACAD Modular Seating installation, designed in collaboration with Adrien Cugullière & Arthur Didier, aka ACAD. The customisable piece 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 recycled plastic seats were 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.”
