Traditional materials like wood, have a long lasting quality but require patience, whiles synthetics like plastic are more practical but less sustainable.

None of them fit requirements of both contemporary living and economy. Designers try to find a balance between contradictory conditions looking at the nature and its unused resources. What grows, renews and multiplies as easily as degrades and vanishes is the center of designers’ attention.
