Soft Materials Engineering is an engineering and design office specialising in inflatable innovations and technical textiles.
“SME” was created by Benjamin Degasne, a textile engineer with 15 years’ experience in technical textiles and inflatable technologies. By crossing all the existing technologies and materials, SME finds creative solutions to complex problems.
This year, SME finalised the development of a children’s life jacket for the Floatee company. SME applied its skill and expertise to develop a “made-to-measure” float – starting from the first sketch up to the industrial prototype.
