NewspaperWood

material design by Mieke Meijer

Every day, piles of newspapers are discarded and recycled into new paper. Mieke Meijer has devised a solution to use this surplus of paper into a renewed material. When a NewspaperWood log is cut, the layers of paper appear like lines of a wood grain or the rings of a tree and therefore resembles the aesthetic of real wood. The material can be cut, milled and sanded and generally treated like any other type of wood. To construct the material a glue free of solvents and plastcizer is used.

In april 2011 the first prototypes have been presented in Milan of which a selection will be included in the Vij5 collection.
