Beat Shelf

Designed in 2012

The Beat Shelf is one of our very first projects. Tjalle designed it for a competition in the creative bar Studio/K in Amsterdam. We enjoyed building it together so much, we decided to start the label Van Tjalle en Jasper. First thing on the menu was re-shaping the shelf and making it out wood instead of multiplex. Beat is still available in our webshop today, albeit in a newer version made of steel.

Tjalle: “The shape of a heartbeat does something to me. It’s a sign of life, like a light in the woods or a flair above sea. For me, the heartbeat is the most archetypical shape of life.”
