Laptop Flapstand

Whether you are working, tweeting, blogging or simply watching a movie, the Kraftisan Flapstand is perfect for your everyday tech activities. With a gradual incline that promotes healthy posture, the stand is a perfect support for your beloved laptop. Lucas R. Adams, founder and lead product designer of Kraftisan, designs the flapstand. He uses an innovative cutting technique that allows the wood to flex and only requires one locking piece to complete it. ‘This makes it easy to use and beautiful in any setting’, says Lucas. ‘The stand is made from 6mm birch plywood and features cork inlays on the top and bottom so that your laptop can gently rest upon a supportive surface.’ Cape Town-based, Kraftisan creates well designed, everyday goods that are beautiful and functional in their own way. Aware of the environment, they use only materials that are sustainable and choose to support local material and service suppliers, while still making their products affordable and accessible. The product is designed for MAC/PC 13'' / 15" and retails for R195.
