Comments Off on SNIJLAB’s Reusable Wood Booklets Can be Flat-Packed for Easy Transport

SNIJLAB creates modern wooden booklets using a laser-cutting technique that turns a single sheet of birch plywood into a beautiful folding booklet. The hard wooden cover is reusable and can be opened fully to the back side for comfortable holding and writing. A tiny clamp inside, made from the same material, holds a standard A7 writing block. By laser-cutting their products, SNIJLAB cuts down on the amount of energy and materials needed for production, and because the design can also be flat-packed, they save even more by reducing carbon costs when it comes to shipping. + SNIJLAB The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
