Last year, Dutch design label Vij5 made headlines in the green scene for its unique line of furniture and home decor items made from recycled newspaper. The innovative material – appropriately dubbed NewspaperWood by designer Mieke Meijer – was unveiled at an exhibition in Milan last year, where Vij5 designers were approached by French automaker Peugeot. After a year of working together in secret, the two labels unveiled their futuristic concept car – which is on display at the 2012 Paris Motor Show until Oct. 14. Along with super-efficient engine technology, the Peugeot Onyx concept car features NewspaperWood material in its interior – drawing attention from car-lovers and reuse enthusiasts alike.
