a little bit more about the material, because it's such a great idea;
every day, piles of newspapers are discarded and recycled into new paper. Mieke Meijer has devised 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
