Our raw materials
At the origin of Boqa creations, we find metal and polyvinyl. The metal represents the structure, the skeleton of our furniture when the polyvinyl dresses them.
These are our core materials that give our creations this unique character.
Polyvinyl is our trademark and allows us to offer you more than 22 colors. Neutral, pastel, soft or vivid; all our shades fit perfectly on our metal structures, white or black. It's up to you to choose the chair that suits you.
Progressively, we have integrated new materials: wood (oak), lace leather, glass, and lately fibers such as linen and acrylic.
Our materials and colors
Polyvinyl chloride (P.V.C)
The metal bars enter the workshop, just out of the steelworks. Placed on the 16-metre long workbench, they will slowly rush into the cutting station. The indicators used daily to adjust the cutting length ensure continuity and regularity, which are essential for the rest of the manufacturing process. Once the parts have been cut to the right length, they will be bent on discs of different sizes to create cylinders or on our bending table designed at the beginning of the adventure, which is today one of our main sources of expertise.
The cut and curved parts are then placed at the assembly stage. The templates come into play and will have two main functions during the design process.
The first is the positioning of the parts which allows repeatability in the assembly and the second is the length control.
A poorly cut part will be discarded at the time of assembly and will avoid any manufacturing defect. Grinding is the finishing step of the steel structure.
This will give a smooth surface appearance and avoid possible blisters that would give the product an unfinished appearance.
The paint, black or white as standard, is obtained by powder coating.
It consists epoxy powder baked at 200°. A first anti-corrosion layer is applied, also called polyzinc. It prevents the appearance of rust on the metal structure.
The second coat offers a matt or glossy finish colour.
Hand braiding is the heart of our expertise. We master this know-how after years of realizations within our workshop.
Our materials and their flexibility do not allow us to make the same braiding as rattan or braided fibre.
This constraint, which is a source of creation for us, is now completely mastered and we have developed a know-how that allows us to create more and more technical pieces year after year.
