not from wood to paper, but the other way around.”
Every day, piles of newspapers are discarded and recycled into new paper. Mieke Meijer has come up with 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.
status | Mieke Meijer is currently working together with designlabel Vij5 to develop NewspaperWood and in a later stage products will be included into the product
collection of Vij5. This project is realised with the help of the Dutch newspaper ‘Eindhovens Dagblad’.
