In 2013 Koeppel Design launched a new venture: a line of handcrafted products for the home, designed for audiophiles and music aficionados.
The collection includes a line of typographic laser-engraved wood panels for organizing vinyl records (LPs), books, CDs and other media is the only high end, durable and handcrafted product line on the market for organizing and protecting media with style.
We offer sleek, minimal wood dividers to organize collections alphabetically or by genre in a range of styles and sizes. Regardless of how you like to organize your media, we want to get your libraries hyper-organized, so you can spend less time searching and more time enjoying your collection.
Anyone who knows me well, knows I'm really into organizing things. This product line began as a personal project, when I decided make a set of alphabetical record dividers for my partner and I to organize our growing vinyl collection. I'd spent months searching for well-made record dividers that weren't plastic, flimsy or disposable. Turns out, the product I wanted didn't exist yet.
I made the first set of record dividers as a one-off. Fast forward several months, many sketches, splinters, trips to the lumberyard, prototypes, countless hours of sanding, and some harassing (but encouraging!) emails from audiophiles eager to get their hands on a set of their own. In the fall of 2013 I launched the first collection. Our products are now available online and in select retailers in the US and Europe. We've designed products for Ghostly International, collaborated with Vinyl Me, Please, sold our products at Urban Outfitters and exhibited at SXSW.
