It is a huge problem to buy or design a wall storage or a bookshelf. Large frames don’t always fit in conventional shelves and books also have different sizes. Therefore, finding the ideal shelf becomes more problematic owing to weight and spacing. And this is where “Tylko Ivy” comes for solving these problems. It lets its users to customize and visualize their perfect shelving unit without leaving their home.
The entrepreneur of the Warsaw-based company, Benjamin Kuna, stated:
“It’s not one product, it’s hundreds and thousands of products, there are so many use cases and shapes that it can fit.”
The design is illustrated by him as a big collaboration of himself and a few friends of his. The idea came from a local design festival. Architect Mikołaj Molenda, parametric designer Michał Piasecki, and interdisciplinary designers Hanna Kokczyńska and Jacek Majewski are the people Kuna works with.
A technology known as CNC machining is behind the creation of the complex shapes that via which the Tylko shelves perfectly fit each other for any kind of requirements. More weight can be held by them as compared to normal shelves. A team of innovative designers from different backgrounds are behind the making of the units which are produced in one of the Europe’s best furniture factories.
By means of a multi-platform augmented reality app, Tylko features a fantastic option to its customers that lets you compose and visualize your perfect shelf real-time on your screen by framing your space. Moreover, you can also select the colour, dimension, and style of each piece, and it is available on both Google Play and App Store.
The users are informed by the app about orders via emailing. Hence, buyers know when units leave the factory and when they will be delivered.
The Tylko shelves can survive house moves as they are produced by tempered steel and Finnish plywood and oiled by hand with toxin-free plant oil, as per the designers. Additionally, in order to make the units fingerprint-resistant, a durable matte laminate covers the surface.
According to Tylko,
“We asked ourselves how we could design perfectly-proportioned shelves (no matter how much you stretch them) and spent two years honing the rules that guarantee your shelves will be spot on – even as you add or delete rows and columns to tweak your design. We want to provide you with the best product we can. We’ve meticulously examined every detail- from a custom instruction manual and color-coded connectors to every hand-bevelled edge or adjustable foot. We really have thought of everything.”
