Founded in 2003 by Stephanie Marin, smarin is a French design studio that creates, develops, and produces furniture design projects, scenographies, and layouts of spaces throughout the world. smarin develops new typologies through objects designed as tools and furniture designed as systems. These offer the opportunity to build collective 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.

Smarin's creation process concentrates on aesthetics, the materials used, and the adequate and efficient scale of production. As the production and sourcing are both local, the company is intentional about its selection of high-quality materials and reducing packaging to have a more sustainable impact. All of the objects are created and made in France, with the vast majority made by the smarin workshops in Nice.
