Sculptur, a Swedish company specialized in large-scale additive manufacturing and circular transition showed they have just 3D printed 50 Reform lounge chairs that are now ready to be shipped to customers around the world. The company highlighted that 3D printed furniture, intended as final products and not just prototypes, is now a reality.

The Reform lounge chair is a design by Reform Design Lab and the company was founded around its very idea by long-time partners Jurij Rahimkulov, Måns Broman and Rutger Andersson. Their journey started in 2017 when Jurij finished the first sketch of what would become the Reform chair. Making the Reform chair proved to be quite difficult. It took almost a year of testing at Swedish research institute RISE, using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology just to obtain a functional sample to sit on.

The chair was first displayed at the Stockholm Light and Furniture Fair in 2020 and from the very beginning the Reform chair set a new standard and every new product we introduce on the market are characterized by our design manifest: Art meets technology in a sustainable way.

Now 50 Reform lounge chairs were produced rapidly by Sculptur’s robotic printer operating continuously day and night. It uses biobased and recyclable materials from UPM and StoraEnso, along with technology from Spectram.

The Reform lounge chair is only the first 3D printed furniture product commercialized by Sculptur. Other products include the Manifest sofa, also designed by Jurij Rahimkulov, to grasp the possibilities and shapes possible by combining design and additive manufacturing.

Another one is the Swirl Terrace table, which was created to meet a custom request from a customer in Switzerland. The Antropo chair is from Polish designer Wojciech Mierzwa from Metafor, who became fascinated with 3D printing and started sketching a chair to learn more about the technology. He came up with this chair made by DuraSense wood fiber and fully recyclable.
