Here’s something interesting for all your record-collectors out there – meet Tunetables. “The Tunetables idea was born,” says inventor and Tunetables head honcho, Rob Chappelhow, “out of a personal desire to have my music collection around me once again.” Inspiration came to Rob, he says, during a visit to the Joe Strummer Exhibition, at Covent Garden: “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.”
And so Tunetables came to be. What we have here are storage units/tables fashioned after musical-instrument flight-cases and hand-crafted from scratch. Tunetables offers a complete set of items to choose from. Storage numbers range from 100 – 500 for CDs, 30 – 60 for tapes, and 75 for vinyl. As you can see from the photos on their website, these products are as much about display as storage, which is crucial for us collectors.
