“NewspaperWood is a new material based on a concept by Mieke Meijer, developed together with and licensed to the Dutch designlabel Vij5. NewspaperWood returns newspapers, which are made of wood, into wood again. 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.”
A series of distinctive cupboards, characterized by a sound and finely detailed construction. Breg was fascinated especially by the indeterminable but distinct colour of the NewspaperWood material. To emphasize this quality he decided to incorporate NewspaperWood into a piece of furniture by combining it with contrasting colours. This cabinet is build out of a solid steel frame which can be delivered in different variations and colours. Within the rigid frame the Newspaper- Wood planks act like real wood.
