Thank you once again, Stumble! First click of the button today and it brings me to this amazing site, Yatzer. "Discover a new material: NewspaperWood" read the headline as the page loaded. The project is by Mieke Meijer who had a vision of reversing the order of production and by doing so, recycling. This was initially just a student project for Meijer, but four years later it became a full blown reality when he teamed up with Arjan van Raadshooven and Anieke Branderhorst of designlabel Vij5. I highly recommend you read the whole article on Yatzer, and definitely check out the sites.
Here are some examples from Yatzer.

I really love the idea of this. I think the treatment, the texture, and the beauty of it are really spectacular. This just goes to show you we can do amazing things with what is already in existence!
