Designer Mieke Dingen created a process by which she produced a wood-like material using newspaper. Through a complex process of gluing and drying, she could replicate the grain patterns of wood by layering newspapers and essentially squeezing them together.
Vij5 then helped her produce furniture pieces using that material. I love the few pieces I have seen. They have a nice faded wood color, and when you look close, seem to also replicate the fraying and splintering of real wood. Check out some of the shots after the jump.
