Innovation is immediately evident in gm3. For example no nails or screws are used in its construction. The only exception (of necessity) is where drawer runners or handles form part of the piece. Legs are turned from solid timber and secured to the top without employing any kind of pre-manufactured fastening.

The specially designed legs of the gm3 range are secured to the top of the piece at a precise angle, necessary to create sturdiness. This concept was specially developed for gm3 and the exact angle employed was the result of extensive design work, modeling and prototyping. The end result is something completely unique to gm3.
