Factum Arte continues the collaboration with Danish designer Mathias Bengtsson to produce a unique Chaise Longue. Since 2013, Bengtsson has been working with Factum to push the boundaries of traditional furniture through expressive forms and advanced techniques.

The chair began as a 3D model sent by Bengtsson which was 3D printed in TetraShell by Materialise. The result is a complete merging between 3D printing technologies and traditional casting techniques - another successful collaboration with the Madrid-based foundry, Fademesa.

A mirror-polished finish was applied before the Chaise Longue was nickel-plated using an electroless bath. This is the first time Factum has employed a chemical bath for finishing a work of art. Using this method, a smooth, satin protective finish was achieved.
