Inspired by imaginations around the world, EQ3 has a mission to provide innovative and affordable home furnishings for everyone who appreciates modern design.
Peter Tielmann, the CEO of EQ3, pioneered the concept in 2001 soon after he moved to Canada. Having grown up in Europe with a background in business and design, Peter was inspired by the affordable ‘young living’ concepts popular in Europe, and recognized an opportunity in North America to offer modern, alternative choices for home furniture. Originally rooted in European design, EQ3 has evolved into a lifestyle concept shaped by a uniquely global design philosophy.
The EQ3 name and logo symbolizes our Canadian heritage and represents two important ideas. EQ represents “emotional quotient”, the measure of our emotional intelligence, reminding us of our responsibility to nurture and celebrate relationships. It measures our ability to perceive the emotions of others, to form appropriate emotional responses, and to nurture our emotional and intellectual growth. The 3 acknowledges the importance of community.
EQ3 products are designed in-house and by designers from around the world. As an international company, we are proud of our Canadian roots and our history of multiculturalism and global awareness. We nurture the celebration of individuality, nationality, race and the cultural rituals which shape the expression of home. We are all committed to the idea that together with others, we can shape the world we live in. EQ3 aspires to engage and foster a culture of individuals who embrace a modern lifestyle and recognize how world events, culture, global design, fashion, architecture, art and music influence, inspire and shape our everyday lives. These realities trigger emotional responses that find expression in our homes. Living with this connected world view, our homes reflect what we believe is important.
We value clean lines, true materials and quality. We are disciplined in our commitment to create modern affordable products that reflect these guiding principles. To achieve the best value, we start with innovative designs that challenge the status quo and pursue alternative manufacturing solutions. We travel the world searching for the most creative combination of resources, construction methods and manufacturers in our relentless aim to make EQ3 products affordable. Our collaborative efforts worldwide result in quality products at accessible prices.
We are proud to call our collections our own. Every concept is developed and manufactured under the direction of our team members. This vertically integrated design and manufacturing process ensures the quality, affordability and design integrity we are so passionate about.
