We're coveting these reusable wooden notebooks, made by Dutch company Snijlab: they're a marvelous merging of digital fabrication and natural materials.

By using lasers to cut the wood, the digital manufacturing company is able to transform it into a highly flexible material; plus, the fine cuts allow the wood to bend back and forth without breaking.

Above: The Wooden Booklet has a birch plywood cover with a clear varnish; € 25. To order, contact Snijlab directly.

Above: The notebook covers are reusable, with a clamp that lets you swap in a standard A7 notepad refill.

Above: Thanks to the laser-cutting technique, the cover can lie completely flat.
