Plywood is one of the strongest materials around. Our premium plywood is made of 13 layers of birch hardwood selected for its strength and beauty. We leave the edges exposed and hand-oiled to showcase the natural grain of the wood fiber.

Frequently asked questions

What’s the difference between the Type01 and Type02 shelves?

The Type01 and Type02 both have the same modern aesthetic when it comes to pattern, grid, gradient and slant styles, as well as the same door and drawer design. The difference with the Type01 is that it's constructed from durable premium plywood with exposed edges showcasing the 13 layers of natural birchwood. The Type01 also features rounded aluminum handles that run along the edge of the door and drawers for an easy grab and safety.

How will I know if a shelf colour will suit my home?

We can send you a colour sample pack in the mail. Let us know you want one by contacting [email protected] We can also provide the RAL/NCS codes for all of our colours.

Is a Tylko shelf safe to use in a child’s room?

Absolutely. We only use sustainably sourced plywood and non-toxic glues and oils. The handles are also rounded to avoid any nasty bumps. The shelf itself is very sturdy and strong, so it won’t sway, sag or topple over. But for added peace of mind, we provide wall mounts so you can attach it firmly to your wall.

How does the 100-day free return work?

Try your shelf for 100 days. If for any reason you’re not happy with it, we’ll pick it back up for free and give you a full refund. No questions asked.

Why do you offer only three row sizes?

Our three row heights are influenced by the common everyday objects of our customers – things like photo frames, vinyl records, oversized coffee table books and shoeboxes. The three heights (18 cm, 28 cm, 38 cm) have been carefully designed so that no matter how much you adjust or adapt them, they won’t sway or sag under weight.

A Simple, Perfect-Fit Bookcase

For a modern wooden shelf for your living room or office space, consider the Type01 Bookshelf.

Whether your space is tall, small, narrow or wide, the ability to customize a unique storage solution for your books is at your fingertips.

How Does it Work?

Using Tylko's easy design interface, you can easily create a contemporary bookcase that suits all interiors. It's minimalist design, high-quality wood and no sag-or-sway guarantee means your bookshelf will stand the test of time - and of style. From a low bookcase to an awe-inspiring, whole-wall library, there's a solution for your book storage.

With the ability to custom design your bookcase, even narrow or difficult spaces can easily become additional storage for your books. Whether hallway, bedroom, living room or home office - any unique or unusual space can easily be filled with a custom-designed bookshelf that will always fit, perfectly. And, using Tylko's augmented reality you can see your book shelf live in your space and tweak and edit every detail down to the last centimeter. Available in black, gray and white, and in almost any width or height you require, your books will love their new, stylish home.

How Many Books Can it Hold?

It's up to you! Each Type01 Bookcase is custom-built to your specifications. If you're an avid reader and need walls of storage, or a magazine stacker who wants a sleek space to show off your glossy issues, you can be sure the Type01 Bookcase is the right choice.

Since it's made of 13 layers of compressed birchwood - one of the strongest types of wood in existence- you can be sure you won't see that suspicious sag after just a few books are stored. And, thanks to Tylko's unique snap-together steel hardware, swaying is a thing of the past, too. Your books will be safe, sturdy and stylish in their bookshelf - each section can support up to 30kg of weight alone.

Will it hold large design books?

It will! With varying section heights of 18, 28 and 38cm you can be sure your oversized design editions will be just as secure as your paperback favorites. After months of research (and lots of measuring common household objects) Tylko found these heights were the ideal sizes to accomodate nearly every kind of item a person would care to store - including all types of reading materials.

Not only will your design books and oversized editions fit beautifully, every book in between will too. You can even decide on sections with doors for more concealed storage if you prefer to keep your bookshelf under wraps. Or mix and match with open and closed sections for a completely unique book shelf solution.

What about the finish?

Pulling your hardcover books out of your shelf hundreds of times will never damage your bookcase. With a high-quality laminate coating that offers excellent stain and scratch protection - while offering a stylish sheen- you can be sure your shelves will last as long as your classics.

Through years of use, your shelf will retain its sheen while resisting scratches. Not only is each shelf coated with laminate, the edges are hand-oiled to preserve the natural look of the beautiful wood - and add vital protection. With lesser-quality MDF and wood, corners can split or fray, or even swell when exposed to moisture. Tylko book shelves are designed to last for generations.

Where Can it Go?

The question is where can't it go! If you need a bookcase in a hallway, home office, bedroom or basment, with Tylko you'll get something that fits perfectly every time. No shoving furniture around or measuring tight spaces - with the Tylko app you can point and decide!

Through the use of augmented reality to see your book storage live in your space, you can make sure the shelf will fit, and most importantly - look great. Just tap and swipe until you're ready to decide, then enjoy fast and free shipping on your new bookcase. And if for any reason you don't fall in love with your bookshelf - just send it back, on us.
