Reform Design Lab, 3D-printed Reform Lounge Chair Black

Comfort meets eco-conscious design: completely recyclable lounge chair with an estimated lifespan of 30+ years.



Swedish company Reform Design Lab steps into the forefront of sustainable design with a cutting-edge Lounge Chair produced with bio-based materials. CEO, Mans Broman says that the company demonstrates how cutting-edge technology can make it possible to open a third disruptive way of manufacturing between mass production and traditional handwork. The revolutionary solution to manufacture exquisite and eye-catchy design pieces with bio-based materials stems from the mission to create the recyclable furniture. Hence, the company took advantage of additive manufacturing and created a lounge chair entirely made from premium biocomposite UPM Formi 3D. The material is versatile and consists of wood-based cellulose fibers from PEFC-certified, sustainably managed forests. Furthermore, UPM Formi 3D granules are easy to process in extrusion, due to high melt strength and dimensional stability. Consequently, the lounge chair is completely recyclable with an estimated lifespan of 30+ years. The high-quality material allows this object to be used both indoors and outdoors while contributing to a significantly lower carbon footprint compared to traditional oil-based plastic. Furthermore, the carbon dioxide emissions involved in production are reduced by up to 80 percent. The company uses large-scale 3D printers and the furniture can be crafted in one piece in their RDL Print Lab. The computer-controlled process creates three-dimensional objects by depositing the material in layers. Thus, the Reform Lounge Chair can be created on demand and the deliverable timeframe is from 4 to 6 weeks.
