The brain-child of Rob Chappellhow, who is as much a music-lover as he is an inventor/designer, the Tunetables range of CD, tape and vinyl storage offer something different to your usual flat-pack shelving. “The Tunetables idea was borne,” says Rob Chappelhow, “out of a personal desire to have my music collection around me once again.”
Inspiration came to Chappelhow during a visit to the Joe Strummer Archive exhibition in Covent Garden. Explains Chappelhow: “Set out under an acrylic plinth was Strummer’s personal tape cassette collection…his musical heritage and inspiration perfectly showcased. It was totally spellbinding. I soon started to conceptualise how I could create my own version of this…a personal time capsule of life-affirming music. I wanted something that could be inherently useful, something that I would see and use every day, and that would be a talking point for like-minded music enthusiasts.”
‘Talking-point’ is bang on when referring to the Tunetables range. Each unit is hand crafted from brand new music-equipment flight-cases. There’s a whole range to choose from, and each one comes with its own personalised motif. Storage ranges from 100 – 500 for CDs, 30 – 60 for tapes, and 75 for vinyl. More to the point, they look great! If you’re in need of a boost to your collection, please do check them out.
