An obvious association with newspapers is the printing technique itself. It is a prerequisite for the existence of high-circulation newspapers. In a visual and suggestive style, Floris has reduced the atmosphere of printing presses and letter trays to a small cabinet. The cabinet can be opened in an unconventional way by a simple movement.
The top of the cabinet is an experiment in NewspaperWood with 3mm veneer on black MDF. With the roller, the lid of the cabinet is slowly opened.
This specific and unique item was part of the first NewspaperWood collection, a series of prototypes experimenting with this new material in 2011.
NewspaperWood is a new material invented by Mieke Meijer, developed together with the Dutch design label Vij5 and now produced and distributed by a new NewspaperWood company. It returns newspapers, which are made from wood, into wood again. When a NewspaperWood log is cut, the layers of paper appear like lines of wood grain or the rings of a tree and therefore resemble the aesthetic of real wood.
This product is made with the original NewspaperWood material. More information on this material can be found here: www.NewspaperWood.com
