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.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
