A-Fold Tablet Stand [iPad+More]
"Everything that I do has a certain mechanical logic to it," says industrial designer Carl Magnusson, "and follows my definition of design—which is function with cultural content." That maxim is applied to something as minimally basic yet essential as the A-Fold, a folding stand for tablets. The polycarbonate and aluminum frame provides a non-scratch rigid cradle for tablet devices and has a non-skid base. Also comes with a lint-free dusting cloth that doubles as a travel pouch. Can be positioned in four different ways. Cable accessibility. Can be used with or without a tablet protection case, in portrait or landscape mode. Carl's storied career in the design arena includes co-founding the Knoll Museum in East Greenville, PA, the largest archive for the brand, of which he also served as a director of design. With his wife, Emanuela Frattini, the pair have collaborated on products for Knoll, Teknion and MoMA among many others. He founded CGM Design in New York and Switzerland, a design studio now serving furniture and automotive makers.
