Carbon fiber reinforced composites are very strong for their weight. They are often stronger than steel, but a whole lot lighter. Because of this, they can be used to replace metals in many uses, from parts for airplanes and the space shuttle to tennis rackets and golf clubs. Carbon fiber is made from polymer, called polyacrylonitrile, by a complicated heating process.

In G3 case our aim was to make rounded forms that fit into and complement each other. The big carbon body gently swings while giving out the impression that energy is about to burst through every corner. It is filled with the stuff that light itself is made of. The tension expressed is calmed down with relatively sharp corners, cut in elements of lock, covers and feet while the handle dives out and dives back into the body.

The use of Carbon Fiber, combined with anodized black and white aluminum, once again proves the visual strength it holds. It was our intention, through form, lines, fittings, colors and by combination of materials, to reveal its full potential.
