- story by MaterialDistrict

Mirjam Griffioen is a designer with a fascination for materials and transforming them. Boiled wood is the result of boiling MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) pressed wood fibers with a resin. These ingredients have been pressed under high pressure and temperature. By transforming the MDF by boiling and deforming it she created a new material with its own characteristics and charme.

Mirjam Griffioen has put a lot of time and research in this new material. Even though manufacturers are already looking into ways to mass-produce her Boiled Wood, it is not yet ready for the commercial market.
