By ensuring sustainable design practices, each SMĪLE shelf is carbon negative — building your shelf stores more CO2 from the environment than it takes to make and deliver it!

The SMĪLE ecosystem collects local waste products from restaurants and construction sites near you, processes and engineers them into timeless and durable decor items.

SOFT TONES THAT
WARM UP YOUR ROOM

Each chopstick undergoes thermal processing, pressure and oil waxing. The heat caramelizes the sugars in the bamboo, to give each SMĪLE shelf its own unique appearance.


This results in three distinctive color palettes. Choose the style that suits your home or combine them and create your own style.

Almond

INSPIRED BY ICONIC
SCANDINAVIAN & GERMAN DESIGNS

For SMĪLE, our in-house architect Tobias Brox found inspiration in Nisse and Kajsa Strinning’s 1949 modular String Shelf system, one of the most popular modular furniture systems during the 1960s in Scandinavia and Germany.


During that period, Eastern Germany (GDR) was increasingly counting on standardized living solutions. In 1961, Schkeuditz launched the “Sybille” modular assembly system to be multifunctional, minimalist, and fit into any living arrangement.


Tobias adapted these historic designs in the most efficient way possible. Capturing the essence of their minimalist modularity, while ensuring the most eco-friendly design and manufacturing process in line with ChopValue’s carbon negative mission.
