Space Bar: The First Frontier is the work of the Jelly Key team and the artisans at Joinhandmade. Inspired by the upcoming release of the Star Trek film, it’s a true concept piece: The handmade space bar is a spaceship, and the Joinhandmade craftsmen are its crew. Together, they’re exploring the furthest reaches of the global tech market space. After all, due to its length, the space bar is the most difficult key to handcraft, requiring a high-quality molding material to ensure it retains its shape. It took dozens of prototypes, but Space Bar: The First Frontier has finally arrived.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of having a logo or not on the spacebar. This drop is limited to 300 units.
Beautiful in its minimalism, The First Frontier is crafted in such a way that it’s virtually free of edges. From top to bottom, its unibody design is smooth to the touch, unifying all elements of the space bar. Each color is mixed by Joinhandmade’s team of experienced artisans, creating a deep black base that glistens with a mysterious metal power—within each space bar lies a unique galaxy unlike any other.
Each Jelly Key requires six phases of complex hand-processing to complete its simplistic design. Careful craftwork of the double-layer finish creates the deep, rich, and ultimately galactic theme. The keys are precisely abraded over several hours, requiring absolute concentration, to achieve the smooth body. This is truly a unique, handmade piece that no mass-produced product can rival.
