Made from recycled paper, the Newspaper Wood panels are now available in five colors.

When a NewspaperWood log is cut, the layers of paper appear like lines of a wood grain or the rings of a tree and therefore resembles the aesthetic of real wood. The material can be cut, milled and sanded and generally treated like any other type of wood. Together with a band of designers, Vij5 have developed numerous pieces of furniture.

Now, working with four different colored newspapers - La Gazetta della Sport, Italia Oggi, Asharq Al-Awsat and the Financial Times - Vij5 are now able to produce the panels in five different colors.
