This year, Milan Design Week is going to be even more interesting than usual because Toyota is unveiling a new concept unlike anything you’ve seen on four wheels. Setsuna, which means “moment” in Japanese, is a unique wooden roadster with smooth lines and construction more reminiscent of a boat than a car. With unique details like a meter designed to track 100 years of time, multiple types and grains of Japanese wood and traditional Japanese joinery techniques like okuriari and kusabi that allow the wood to be joined without nails or screws, this fully-functional concept is one of the most refined automobiles we’ve ever seen.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
