Hello everyone! TodayI'm telling you about a super cool project coming very soon. It is a great pride for the entire Quark team to present this project to you, which is a big step for us! And yes! You may have guessed it if you follow us on social networks, Quark is launching its ephemeral boutique in the heart of Paris. You will be able to come and shop for your Pegboards and your favorite accessories for a week.
The boutique will be held in Le Marais from Thursday March 16 to Sunday March 19. Quark will welcome you from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on site.
Opening a Pop-Up is a step that has been close to our hearts for a long time. This is an opportunity to present many universes around the Pegboard Quark. You will be able to discover all the shades, touch the products, play with the Pegboards. This is an opportunity for us to share our vision of interior design and modularity. And the best thing about this business: you can meet the team at the same time and ask all your questions!
We can't wait to show you all this but in the meantime we'll tell you a little more ;)
The Pop-Up Store: A First for Quark
And yes, this is a first for us! This is the first time we've organized such an event. It is a big project and it requires a lot of organization. If there are people among you who have already organized events you know 🙂
The idea came to us because we really like our customers, meet them, know their needs, evolve together.
It's a friendly moment and above all, which allows you to get to know the Quark universe better.
We also particularly like our products, we work very hard to offer you products always more qualitative, practical and design .
Opening a pop-up store was the perfect opportunity.
It is very important for us to be able to make you discover our universe from another angle than through social networks and the website.
It is the dream of all creators to have a shop or perhaps exhibit their creations! This really allows us to make you discovereven more about the brand universe, about the products and the team.
An event in the heart of cultural Paris
For this pop-up store project, we chose a strategic and more than emblematic location in Paris: Le Marais. A historic district located in the heart of Paris, renowned for its rich architectural, cultural and artistic heritage. It is also a place associated with the world of design, in particular furniture design and fashion.
In the 18th century, the Marais became a very special place as it became a centre of the fashion industry, with many silk, lace and ribbon manufacturers established in the region. Fashion designers and tailors of the time began to experiment with new styles of clothing, using high quality fabrics and innovative sewing techniques. Le Marais became a meeting place for fashion designers, artists and intellectuals, who exchanged ideas and collaborated to create unique works of art.
In the 20th century, the Marais was revitalized as the artistic and cultural center of Paris. Many artists, designers, and architects have established studios and galleries in the neighborhood, making it a hotspot for design creation and innovation. The Marais is now home to many fashion and design stores, contemporary art galleries and museums, as well as workspaces for designers and artists.
So it was obvious for us to choose this very special place for the opening of our pop-up store. A place steeped in creation, design and history.
The Quark Universe
If you are new to the Quark universe and have just discovered, I will give you a quick overview.
Quark is the Pegboard specialist. If you're new to Pegboards, I'll enlighten you a bit.
The Pegboard is a modular storage solution. It is a board pierced with regularly spaced holes (one perceives in this sentence the soft voice of the engineers). The holes are used to receive dowels, hooks, wooden dowels or shelves. These elements will allow you to arrange various objects. It is ideal for creating storage spaces in your interior.
The Pegboard is trademarked and used by Masonite Corporation. The Pegboard brand was first used in 1962. This pegboard is commonly used in retail with steel rods protruding to hold products for hanging.
At Quark, we find the Pegboard to be an extraordinary object. Yes, simply ❤️. And now we want to share all the possibilities of the Pegboard with you. When you look at a board with holes, you quickly think that you can find an infinity of combinations!
The pop-up shop
A new way to discover
This pop-up store will allow us to highlight our new products. Like for example our Pegboards on wheels or the Pegboard space separator. These are brand new products that are out of the ordinary, that explore new horizons. At Quark we like to innovate and go always further, for us, Pegboards are storage and decoration spaces but not only. There are many possibilities. And we want to push these possibilities to their maximum and always go further. It's also an opportunity for customers, so for you :) because it allows you to project yourself and it can also give you ideas for decoration . In addition to that, you will have the opportunity to preview some of our products. Not bad is not it ?
And yes, Quark is also exploring this possibility! 3D printing is now part of our production techniques for many accessories. Shelves, small accessories and games of all kinds, a ball course for Pegboard, in short. We have been able to make good use of this invention of 3D printing. It accompanies us and it is now essential, and I would even say that it is the little extra from Quark ;).
It is also an opportunity to better understand and to have the opportunity to see in real life 3D printed products. I know many of you sometimes have questions about this. If you want to learn more, there is also a special blog post on 3D printing. Here it is if you ever want to take a look :) But the best thing is to come and discover for yourself at the pop-up shop what we are capable of! And you won't be disappointed :)
A local production
Our Pebboards are produced in Paris, in the 19th arrondissement. Our workshop is hosted at Métropole 19. There are many craftsmen, companies that create and manufacture. Soaps, fabric bricks, K-Ryols and even concrete enclosures!
A perfect environment that allows us to develop our creativity. We are happy to participate in the creation of a local production that cannot be relocated by nature!
Conceived, designed and produced in our workshop, Quark has chosen to manufacture authentic modular storage units of superior quality. We have chosen 100% French manufacturing because we like things that are well made and above all that last over time. This is why made in France was obvious to us. This also allows us to be able to offer you products adapted to your needs as well as products made to measure for all the rooms in your home. Choosing to consume local also means supporting small businesses (like ours) and also participating in local and environmental standards. It is also preserving the cultural heritage of France, a real star, known throughout the world.
An event not to be missed
We'll give you a little recap. You can't say you didn't see ;) The pop-up shop will be held: in the Marais from Thursday March 16 to Sunday March 19. Quark will welcome you from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on site. You will be able to discover a wide choice of Pegboard as well as a wide choice of accessories. You can also discover many sets up because we have plenty to inspire you, you're going to love it! It's an opportunity to get inspired, and we'll be there to guide you if needed. This is the advantage of the ephemeral shop! We will be able to meet and talk to each other in person and that, we love it! We are also organizing a little surprise for you! Thursday evening there will be the opening of the shop a little party for us and the Quarkos, not bad, isn't it?
Even if you land in the Quark world you are of course welcome. In short, it's an opportunity to discover, to get inspired for your own decoration. But also to be able to meet the creators, to learn more about the brand if you wish. In addition to being a shop, it is a real friendly and human moment very important for us. It is also an opportunity to experience a unique moment for you as well as for us! Because the pop-up store is an opportunity for us to organize in a creative and original way to offer you a shopping experience different from that of the large chain stores. And this is an opportunity for you to support small businesses: By purchasing products at a pop-up shop event, you support local small businesses and contribute to the vitality of the local economy :)
You will understand, this is a project we are very proud of and we can't wait to see you there for the opening :)
