Exclusive to James Latham in the UK, Decospan’s inspiring collection of Querkus veneers offer architects and designers an ecological option of using Oak with a contemporary twist.
In a unique production process, Querkus combines both FSC® certified European white Oak and reclaimed Oak timbers, which captures and enhances the beauty, colour, markings and structure of solid wood along with the many advantages of a veneered panel.
A European leader in premium veneer processing, Decospan use strictly selected, slow-growing Oaks from controlled and regulated growth zones in Croatia.
Timber is cut into veneers, which are glued together to produce a single, solid picture. This makes it possible to use various thicknesses of veneer, allowing flexibility and customisation for designers to select a panel that meets exactly their colour, pattern, touch and budgetary needs.
Using Decospan’s unique and innovative veneer matching techniques, boards are created that give designers unprecedented choice in a wood panel product. Wire brushing and patented “saw effect” scratching options impart character, texture and authenticity so that no matter how they are finished, Querkus panels look natural, adding dimension, depth and texture to any project.
Panels are supplied untreated so that a wood stain or varnish can be applied according to taste and specification. Wood oil also offers optimum protection, while retaining the veneer’s natural feel and warmth.
Group Veneer Product Champion for James Latham, Dan Mahoney commented, “Querkus is a sustainably designed product that combines authentic materials with engineered stability. With four eye-catching and distinctive ranges in the collection, including Oak Natural, Oak Vintage, Oak Smoked and Oak Retro, reaction from architects and designers has been really positive, and we are seeing more and more specifications coming through, particularly for high-end residential, retail, commercial and hospitality projects.”
