Dead Wood from Newspapers made into a Lamp

Mieke Meijers Holz aus alten Zeitungen hatte ich schonmal vor einem Jahr, jetzt haben sie auf der Ventura Lambrate 2011 in Mailand erste Einrichtungsgegenstände aus dem Material vorgestellt, die Leselampe oben ist gleichzeitig ein Zeitungsständer. Das Zeug ist zwar insgesamt ziemlich hässlich, die Idee allerdings grandios.

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.

In april 2011 the first prototypes have been presented in Milan of which a selection will be included in the Vij5 collection.
