Birch Ply Notebooks

SNIJLAB, a Dutch design studio based in Rotterdam, has introduced a series of booklets fabricated entirely from wood. Cut from a single sheet of birch plywood, a clever array of laser-cut perforations allows for the cover to hinge with complete flexibility, while another wooden piece clamps an A7 format notebook inside. A series of slits on the back cover allows for a band to be slipped in and around the cover, keeping the notebook shut.

BOOKLETS – It’s just wood!

Recently we found a really nice technique that makes wood flexible.

We designed wooden booklets that use this feature. They’re made from a beautiful birch plywood and are finished with a clear varnish. The hard wooden cover can be opened fully to the back side for comfortable holding. A tiny clamp inside, made from the same material, holds a standard A7 writing block.
