Exhibitions and Event spaces
Temporary exhibitions require significant resources, often including bespoke materials for each exhibition. Our recycled plastic panels create flexible, short-term spaces with a circular approach to design. In 2023, Smile Plastics partnered with Surface Design Show, pushing production boundaries with functional, movable Heron-coloured materials. After the show, all materials were reused, repurposed, and reimagined, closing the design loop.

In the States of Mind Exhibition, perspectives from artists, psychologists, philosophers and neuroscientists were examined to interrogate our understanding of the conscious experience. Smile Plastics materials were deployed for cabinetry, display units, and surface finishes for seating and column features.
