Factum Arte has been experimenting with different materials - from basalt to salt - to extend the range of materials that can be used to make Bengtsson’s designs. The Growth Lounge Chair, commissioned and designed by Bengtsson was 3D printed in Tetrashell by Materialise in Belgium and then cast in bronze in Madrid. The project was led by Factum Arte´s Francesco Cicognetti.
