netherlands based designer breg hanssen has created ‘framed’ for dutch label, vij5. utilizing panels of newspaperwood, the cabinet adopts a distinctive and indeterminable appearance that integrates material exploration with an industrial aesthetic.

a rigid metal frame, finished in bright blue, contrasts the recycled paper slabs, emphasizing the unique color and the small text that is visible between each layer. with characteristics similar to that of hardwood, the cabinet is both strong and durable, with a surface that varies from piece to piece and ages over time.

  • The metal frame is a nice simple concept that could highlight any material. Very nicely done.
