With HQ, we have built a durable, sustainable product that will enable you to work well from home for years to come.
The frame of HQ is composed of steel, guaranteeing a substantial and sturdy structure. It is then powder coated, providing a consistent durable finish. Unlike traditional solvent-based wet paint, powder coating doesn't generate harmful solvents or airborne pollutants.
The HQ exterior is manufactured from recylced PET and polyester fibers. Plastic bottles are collected, compressed, shredded and melted down to create granulate, which is then pressed together in layers to make sturdy sheets of PET felt. We cut grooves into the sheet material so it hugs our steel frame. Not only is the material excellent from a sustainability standpoint, it also has amazing acoustical properties -- creating a work space with sound dampening of external noise and low reverberation inside HQ.
Finally, the interior worksurface is manufactured from a combination of real wood and recycled wood products and finished in a range of striking veneers. Our wood grain work surface finish is not prone to the same aging effects as solid wood, such as splitting or warping and is easy to clean.
Beyond the use of materials, we believe "sustainability" also means buying a durable, high-quality product. "Fast furniture," just like "fast fashion," is composed of cheaper materials designed with a short lifespan in mind. One of the reasons we take such care in the design and detailing of Demarc products is to ensure their use for years to come inside of your home.
We believe long lasting products not only bring joy but are durable and easy to maintain
Throughout our manufacturing process, we are proud to represent a sustainable economy
