Hang anywhere from 1 to 5 shelves on your frames, combine colors and sizes, and mix & match different units to create a timeless design that fits your home. SMĪLE's fine lines, open and lightweight aesthetics make it versatile to blend with any interior style. SMĪLE is proof that eco-friendly minimalism can be durable and look beautiful.
DIMENSIONS & IMPACT
EACH SMĪLE IS MADE FROM:
2188 chopsticks recycled and transformed that otherwise would have ended up in the landfill
3266 of stored CO2 that otherwise would have been released into the atmosphere
Making a positive impact, one chopstick at a time.
MEET THE DESIGNER
As early as 1955, Nisse and Kajsa Strinning presented the string shelf system to the public in Sweden. This historic design motivated ChopValue concept team member and in-house architect, Tobias Brox, to recreate a modern version that brought SMĪLE to life.
He designed SMĪLE in the most efficient way on multiple levels. From designing resource utilization for zero waste during production, all the way to its optimal use in any living space, this shelving system is built to bring functionality and timeless aesthetic into your home.
As a circular economy driven brand, we are aiming to express innovation and the efficient use of materials in our designs. We approach this in the most climate positive way we know: with SMĪLE, by ChopValue.
