SMILE: The Modular Shelf Made Entirely Of Chopsticks
Introducing our most sustainable, carbon neutral design that’s both functional and beautiful. Engineered from 4,276 recycled chopsticks, SMĪLE is proof that eco-friendly minimalism can be durable and look great — it’s performance you can count on.
Each SMĪLE shelf is carbon negative, as we utilize sustainable design practices that promote a circular economy. This means gathering the raw materials and building your shelf stores more CO2 from the environment than it takes to make and deliver it!
We intentionally designed SMĪLE to complement the interiors of your home, no matter what your style is. The understated frame and modest shelves are the perfect platform to showcase and store any of your belongings. When you look more closely, the details and intricacy of our uniquely engineered material makes it an instant climate positive conversation piece.
Want to display your favorite books in the living room, or candle collection in the bedroom? Maybe WFH (Work From Home) has become your new reality — and it’s time to organize your home office by giving those blank walls some love with a SMĪLE.
Each SMĪLE is made of 2 components: the recycled steel frames equipped with a refined matte black finish, and our innovative recycled chopstick shelves built to last. Hang anywhere from 1 to 5 shelves on your frames, combine colors and sizes, and mix and match different units to create that ideal look for your home or office space. No matter how big or small your space is, there’s the perfect SMĪLE combination for you.
The best part? SMĪLE’s modularity allows you to refresh and change up the placements as often as you want. It’s adult lego that you’ll never get bored of.
Unlock your creativity and let modularity inspire you.
Not every room is the same, and that’s why SMĪLE comes in 3 sizes. Simply select from sizes S, M or L and combine them to build the shelf your space deserves. Minimalist design, maximized storage space, with endless configurations.
SMĪLE comes in 3 color palettes for you to choose from. Near the end of the manufacturing process, your shelves are coated in a vegetable-based and environmentally-friendly oil to enhance our material’s unique wooden patterns. Whether you’re looking for a lighter color scheme to brighten up your space, darker shelves to bring the room together, or our signature natural color that goes with just about anything, the choice is yours.
Worried about installation? Getting your SMĪLE on has never been easier. Each package comes with an installation matrix to mark the exact location of your frames so the shelves lock in perfectly. Just tape the installation matrix on the wall and mount your SMĪLE based on your preference.
Annually over 100 billion disposable chopsticks are used worldwide. If you lined them all up, that’s equivalent to 68 trips to the Moon! And they all end up in landfills…
To date, we have recycled and transformed close to 30 million chopsticks, saving them from landfills.
