Wooden concept car debuts at Milan Design Week

Toyota will debut its newest concept car at this year’s Milan Design Week. It’s called the Setsuna, and its design was led by engineer Kenji Tsuji who wanted to respond to the current excess of technology and gadgetry with something that’s a little more classic.

The car is made from 86 handmade wooden panels including Japanese cedar and Japanese birch, which are formed using traditional Japanese woodworking techniques such as okuriari and kusabi. In using a material that’s more malleable than metal, the shape of the car will slowly change as it ages, taking on a more pronounced curve as the wood bends.
