Novel products often use novel materials. The development of a new type of plywood is the basis for Paper-Wood. The starting point is the simplest of all imaginable innovations: Paper-Wood consists of alternating sheets of coloured recycled paper and wood. The result is an exceptionally attractive coloured edge. What is more, recycled paper is a particularly sustainable material that also increases the bending strength of the plywood.
