DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
G3 carbon briefcase

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Brief and laptop case

INSPIRATION:
Particular attention was paid to lines, relations of the separate parts as well as to the form as a whole, every single element, their fittings, even color was designed to fulfill functional needs completely. The lock is cut into the carbon body and lock covers additionally protect it on front and backside. Both sides of the carbon body are identical for the ease of the production. Our inspiration was to use this superb material and make functional and lightweight briefcase.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Carbon fiber reinforced composites are very strong for their weight. They're 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, by a complicated heating process. Carbon Fiber is composed of carbon atoms by more than 90%. These carbon atoms are lighter than any metal atoms.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The case is consisted of carbon body and handle that make symmetrical, reflected motion in space, a motion of objects in harmony. This is even more intensified with the high gloss surface of the carbon body, mirroring the handle above. Together, all these elements form a compact, firm and strong object. 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.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Carbon Fiber belongs to a group and has similar properties to diamond. Diamond is the hardest and strongest material in the world, whereas graphite is soft and slippery. The reason for this difference is said to come from difference in crystal structure. Charcoals are soft and slippery because of their complicated irregular structure, whereas diamonds are very strong because of regular and orderly structure. Diamonds have a 3D structure of carbon atoms, and Carbon Fibers have a 2D mesh structure with carbon atoms orderly lined up in the fiber direction and entwined together.

CHALLENGE:
It was our aim 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.
