Concept

A series of distinctive cupboards, specially designed around the material NewspaperWood, characterized by a sound and finely detailed construction.

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.

Breg Hanssen, the designer of the Framed cabinet, 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. With this he literally ‘frames’ the material in coated steel. The cabinets are build out of a solid steel frame which can be delivered in different variations and colours.

This product is made with the original NewspaperWood material. More information on this material can be found here: www.NewspaperWood.com
