Mieke Meijer out of Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands has set out to reinterpret the concept of wood with her invention of NewspaperWood. She took stacks upon stacks of newspaper and precisely glued them together to create a material robust enough for industrial design. Mieke was noticed by Dutch designers Vij5 who helped bring NewspaperWood to the world of lifestyle and houseware products. Several pieces of the beautiful furniture they created were showcased at Ventura Lambrate during Milan Design Week 2011. Photos of the pieces of furniture created by NewspaperWood can be seen here.
