“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 NewspaperWood tables with a remarkable steel construction: 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 tabletops are created using greyboard ‘multiplex’ as carrier, covered with a layer of NewspaperWood ‘veneer’. With this, the material remains recycable. The panels are coated with a water-based lacquer.
