The Setsuna, Toyota’s Timeless Wooden Car

April 21, 2016

The Toyota Setsuna is a breathtaking concept car made almost entirely of wood. Hand-assembled using a traditional Japanese technique using no nails or screws, it uses more than 86 essences of wood. Setsuna means “moment” and evokes how wood ages and changes over time, like humans do. In fact, where an odometer should be you find a 100-year meter which keeps track of the car’s age.
