DESIGNER: MIEKE MEIJER
The "New Hybrids" chair by Dutch designer Mieke Meijer uses a new material called the “NewspaperWood”.
The NewspaperWood is the result of a 2003 project of Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Mieke Meijer. After several years of research, in association with the Dutch duo designers Vij5, they created two years ago, for the car manufacturer Peugeot, the interior of the "Onyx" concept and just ended the new concept car "Exalt".
