Ahead of Milan Design Week, Toyota has built a stunning open-top, two-seater car from wood, rebuking the notion that innovative design must come from the latest technology. Called the Setsuna Concept, the drivable wooden vehicle highlights the heirloom qualities of natural materials and how products can be designed to age with grace rather than becoming obsolete. “Wood changes in color and feel in direct response to the love and care shown to it,” states the Japanese car-maker.
