NewspaperWood by Vij5 and Mieke Meijer flips the idea of materials on its head. Instead of using wood as a source to make paper, NewspaperWood uses the paper to make wood! The design was Meijer’s project at the Design Academy Eindhoven, who decided it was time to create something useful from old newspapers that no one wanted.
