    Made of Wood - Toyota Setsuna

    toyota setsuna

    Toyota's incredible concept car, revealed at Milan Design Week last month is made almost entirely of wood — Japanese cedar and birch, to be specific — and was built using traditional Japanese carpentry techniques that don't involve nails or screws.

    Quite why we're surprised by outstanding craft work in natural materials I'm not sure - these are ancient skills brought forward with new tech - but pleasing to see that they are still valued and relevant to more than watercraft.

    Even so, it's very boaty.
