I don't understand completely. Do you want to get out of smooth preview in the workspace? If so just hit 1 on the keyboard.

If you don't want the object to be rendered as the smooth preview then you need to detach it from the MR subdiv approx node. (Select the object, Windows>Hypergraph connections, and delete the connection to the object).
