At Byarums Bruk in Småland we manufacture park and garden furniture, plant pots/urns, products for the cities and more. All made of sand cast recycled aluminium. The production at Byarums Bruk consists of a mixture of classic models and contemporary design. The oldest model is dated 1780, the last one is brand new. Thus Byarums Bruk manufacture products that have been designed for four centuries and all products are made at the foundry here in Byarum. At the foundry we work exclusively with old, handicraft methods, so-called raw sand molding. This means that, for every product that is cast, we make a form of natural sand and water without chemical binders. Thereafter, the form is filled with melted metal, and the cast product appears. In this way, each cast product is unique.
The method of casting iron was developed in China before the birth of Christ. Later this knowledge reached Europe. In the second half of the 18 th century England reached a world leading position and during the 19 th century, Sweden developed into a leading foundry nation. It is this legacy that we would like to pass on, while we, in collaboration with artists and designers develop new products for parks and gardens.
