Redesign Your Home with Tylko App

Interesting Engineering

Residents of small apartments or fans of minimalist design know they must make every space count.

A new app called Tylko gives users a chance to create their perfect bookshelf, sideboard, wall storage or bench. The app allows people to combine different sized shelving to get the best fit for a space to optimize functionality.
Buying or designing a wall storage or a bookshelf poses a big problem. Books vary in size, larger frames don't always fit traditional shelves. Weight and spacing add difficulty in finding the perfect shelf. The Tylko Ivy looks to solve those issues.

The app allows users to customize and visualize their perfect shelving unit without leaving their home.

"It's not one product, it's hundreds and thousands of products, there are so many use cases and shapes that it can fit,"said Benjamin Kuna, the entrepreneur of the Warsaw-based company.

He describes their design as a big collaboration of himself and a few friends of his. The idea came from a local design festival. Kuna works with architect Mikołaj Molenda, parametric designer Michał Piasecki ,and interdisciplinary designers Hanna Kokczyńska and Jacek Majewski.

"Every detail counts"

"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-beveled edge or adjustable foot. We really have thought of everything."
