Volvo 3CC Interior – The 3CC Color theme of the chosen exterior was "Quiksilver - sporty and casual with attention to detail."
The main inspirational influences were:
the clean bright white of the IPod, expressed in a paint application to mimic Corian; the casual but tailored statement of denim, expressed in a Carbon Blue leather instrument panel; and to bring warmth, Saddle leather, especially important in the absence of wood and to create a Scandinavian vs. Germanic statement overall.
Technology and the environment, a Volvo trademark, were represented by several materials - 2x2 twill Carbon Fibre trim around the beltline, suggesting the underlying structure of the body. This material choice was critical since there was a strict weight limit for the Michelin event in China. The flooring material was from the Finnish company, Woodnotes. It is woven paper yarn, derived from wood. This was a custom order, done especially for the vehicle.
