Floris Hovers, Arjan van Raadshooven, Anieke Branderhorst
As a carrier for the NewspaperWood veneer panels, Vij5 was searching for a stable construction with a nice detailing to complement the material rather than to predominate it.
The solution was found in a remarkable steel construction designed by Floris Hovers. By cutting away material in the corners of the steel profiles, it is possible to bend the legs into shape.
The sizes of the panels are inspired by the sizes of tabloid newspapers. The table tops are created using grey board ‘multiplex’ as carrier, covered with a layer of NewspaperWood ‘veneer’. With this, the material remains recyclable. As a finishing, the panels are coated with a water-based lacquer.
NewspaperWood is a new material invented by Mieke Meijer, developed together with the Dutch design label Vij5 and now produced and distributed by a new NewspaperWood company. It returns newspapers, which are made from 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 resemble the aesthetic of real wood.
This product is made with the original NewspaperWood material. More information on this material can be found here: www.NewspaperWood.com
It is also possible to order the complete series of Tabloid Tables with Oakwood panels, solid or coloured in light grey. If a table consists out of multiple panels, it is possible to combine NewspaperWood and Oakwood in one table.
