The newspaper: a report of facts and events, which can be decomposed into images and characters. For NewspaperWood, Greetje has zoomed in on these characters. She analysed the alphabet and simplified it into abstracted forms.
Fragmented, they now form drawer handles in a desk that facilitates working on an own history.
The fronts of the desk are from NewspaperWood and treated with wax. The abstracted letters are lasercut and function as the grips on the different drawers in the desk.
NewspaperWood is a new material invented by Mieke Meijer, developed together with the Dutch designlabel Vij5 and now part of a new NewspaperWood company.
