Twelve South Launches 'Curve Riser' Stand for iMac

Twelve South today added a new iMac stand to its product lineup, this one called the "Curve Riser," matching the aesthetic of the company's existing Curve MacBook stand. The new accessory is priced at $79.99.

12s CurveRiser Front HiRes
The Curve Riser is made out of metal and includes a fixed-height structure with a shelf for accessory storage. The stand can accomodate an ‌iMac‌, ‌iMac‌ Pro, or external display.

12s CurveRiser LS10 Macmini HiRes
Twelve South noted that thanks to the Curve Riser's ventilated design, it's perfect for storing powered hubs, external drives, a Mac mini, and more.

12s CurveRiser LS6 HiRes
Previous Twelve South ‌iMac‌ stands, like the HiRise Pro, included a front panel to hide its internal shelf, and let users adjust the height of the ‌iMac‌. The Curve Riser doesn't support these features, and is being sold at a cheaper price to reflect its more simple design.

You can purchase the Curve Riser today on Twelve South's website for $79.99.

That looks bad from an ergonomic standpoint.

The stand is going to put the top of the monitor above your eye level when it should be at or slightly below it. This could cause neck strain.



That's not necessarily true. It would depend on the height of the user, desk, and the chair... all relative to each other. For a taller person, that stand could bring the top of an iMac/monitor right into the visual sweet spot.

On topic: The riser is really overpriced. Inexpensive risers with storage are readily available pretty much everywhere. Heck this thing is less than $25 on Amazon and looks to have much better airflow for a Mac Mini on the shelf.
