Grovemade Debuts New Maple and Walnut Wood Laptop Stands

Grovemade today announced a new Laptop Stand, adding to its line of handmade wooden desk accessories. Available in Walnut and Maple like the company's other products, the Laptop Stand is made from sheets of wood veneer that have been molded into a curve.

The Laptop Stand is designed to position a laptop at an angle that makes it easy to use on a desktop. There's an aluminum stop at the end to keep the laptop from falling off and it's lined with vegetable tanned leather for extra grip. When placed on a desk, there's room underneath for hiding accessories out of sight.
"Bringing increased function and order to your desktop, the Laptop Stand is the perfect complement to any work or home office, making for a distinctive and comfortable way to help you work, watch, or play," says Ken Tomita, Grovemade's co-founder. "The Laptop Stand's unique design, employing a curvature, molded and shaped from several sheets of wood, lends a welcoming aesthetic boost to your workspace."
Grovemade's new Laptop Stand has been created to match a range of other desk accessories, including a monitor stand, a keyboard case, a mouse pad, a wrist rest, a lamp, and more.

Wow that is absolutely hideous! So incredibly tacky. It's really sad that people think wood and technology go together. This is just abysmal.


Yeah, All those luxury cars filled with technology and wood grained trim.

Sure looks pretty but I'm not sure how functional these are.

Sure I did. Why doesn't my post make sense to you?


I think he means the fact that it's not asymmetrical.

To me it looks exactly the same as the iMac stand, except that it's tilted forwards.

Crude mock-up included for reference.

If you mean the tables? I believe tables are commonly wooden, and the wood grain they use isn't hideous to hold the devices for display. The difference is that Apple's are simply holding the devices for display, not basically embedding technology with wood, like this is. That said I do think the Apple tables are a little on the weird side.


I'm not sure you are serious......

Anyone who can afford a $119 laptop stand, probably is surrounded by wood. That's the point. Those of us who appreciate expensive furniture don't want some cheap plastic stand holding our monitor....

Let me enlighten you on how a beautiful office can look....

I'm pretty sure not a single one of those offices ISN'T using wood. Every executive where I work has wood desks.....

Technology and wood go hand in hand.....

Does anybody know the name of that lamp on the desk?! It's beautiful!

If you mean this one (http://grovemade.com/product/walnut-desk-lamp/?initial=95), it's an accessory by Grovemade that's designed to match.

Every once in a while I see a quote from someone so far out in their own expanse of the universe, that it just has to be printed out and hung up on the fridge in our lounge, for all our designers to marvel at, and remember, regardless of everything they went to school for and studied for and considered and experimented with and tried and failed and tried again and succeeded over the entirety of their careers, it cannot be denied, that people like you, also exist.

Thank you, for this months sobering reminder.

Very elegant. Looks like a Charles and Ray Eames design (https://www.google.com/search?newwindow=1&biw=1204&bih=654&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=charles+and+ray+eames+wood+lounge+chair&oq=charles+and+ray+eames+wood+lounge+chair&gs_l=img.3...13987.20111.0.20414.12.12.0.0.0.0.111.1006.11j1.12.0.msedr...0...1c.1.64.img..12.0.0.dhk2AzGj8_w).
