News­pa­per­Wood by Mieke Mei­jer

Mieke Meijer of Design Academy Eindhoven has set out to reinterpret the concept of wood with the creation of the material NewspaperWood. Reversing the whole technique, she set out to take stacks upon stacks of newspaper and through a gluing process was able to create a relatively robust material suitable for industrial design.

 

Her efforts were recognized by Vij5 who helped bring NewspaperWood to the world of lifestyle products as several pieces of furniture were subsequently created and showcased at Ventura Lambrate during Milan Design Week 2011.
