What is Next Nature?

Woodplastics

Looking for a new kitchen counter-top, but can’t decide between a natural or an artificial material? Soon you might be getting both.

Designer Hironori Yoshida is pioneering hybrids of wood and plastic – to be used in interior, furniture and product design. His ‘woodplastic’ is created by scanning & laser-cutting the grain patterns in a piece of wood to subsequently replace the gaps with a polyester resin. The result is a marriage of the made & the born.
