Since 2003, smarin creates, develops and produces furniture design projects, scenographies and layout of spaces throughout the whole world.
One of the particularities of smarin is its cross-cutting and creative approach – from design to production to distribution. Its creation process concentrates on the aesthetics of the creations, the materials used and the adequate and efficient scale of production.
As the production and sourcing are both local, the selection of high-quality materials and the constant consideration of reducing packaging participate in smarin’s sustainable involvement.
All of these objects are created and made in France and the vast majority by the smarin workshops in Nice.
Integrating complementary know-how into the team, the studio collaborates with architects, artists, and personalities that broaden their knowledge.
smarin explores different fields of creation researches based on the idea of the using experience through “objects designed as tools” and “furniture designed as systems”.
These offer the opportunity to build collective invention spaces and propose inclusive moments, creating a shared experience. They also allow users to reconsider their body language and gestures and offer new therapeutic mechanisms.
Two major groups structure the smarin range :
- the free elements such as the iconic peebles cushions – livingtones and colorstones -, nénuphares or dunes make it possible to use bodily instinct whilst in motion or simply relaxing.
- the structuring elements such as the Mobileshadows or the construction system play YET ! that allow a creation of temporary storage, separations of nomadic spaces and play areas that are ready for all trials and tribulations.
