NOTE:

A series of distinctive cupboards, characterized by a sound and finely detailed construction.
Breg was fascinated especially by the indeterminable but distinct colour of the NewspaperWood material. To emphasize this quality he decided to incorporate NewspaperWood into a piece of furniture by combining it with contrasting colours.
This cabinet is build out of a solid steel frame which can be delivered in different variations and colours. Within the rigid frame the NewspaperWood planks act like real wood.
 
NewspaperWood is a new material invented by Mieke Meijer, developed together with the Dutch designlabel Vij5 and now part of a new NewspaperWood company.
