iPad Wood

Oh, to be held by a block of wood. The warm embrace of Mother Nature herself, all chopped down to a convenient size for us humanoids. Or in this case, us pieces of technological wonder. This is a stand for the iPad, the “Block22” to be exact, and it’s mainly made of wood. Designers at Sherwood+Meister have created a masterpiece in simplicity and craftsmanship. Each piece is carved from a solid block of FSC-certified kiln-dried Ipe wood – a South American hardwood “prized for its enduring strength and density.” Ohh! Super fancy.

Each piece of wood used in the creation of the Block22 is harvested according to Forest Stewardship Council criteria, ensuring fair compensation for workers and sustainable harvesting techniques. After the carving and hand-stamping with polished aluminum accents, each Block22 is hand-rubbed with a fabulous satin finish.

The Block22’s groove is designed to match the iPad’s sensual curves in the most warm embrace, no matter the orientation, in a way that allows you easy access to all the buttons and switches. Along the bottom is 100% wool felt padding to provide a secure footing during use.

    Wouldn’t it damange the case of the iPad, when used extensively? The groove doesn’t look really deep.

    What's the big deal with this design – seems like something my dad could make easily in his home shop.

    Can I simply say such a alleviation to find somebody who actually knows what they may be discussing on the internet. You definitely get experience to bring a difficulty to light and make it valuable. Even more people should learn this and understand this particular aspect of the story. I cant believe you are not very popular because you really have the gift.

    Whats the big deal? Design is like clothes, some stuf you like and some stuf you dont like even if others likes it… And it’s not so easy to create simple and ellegant things.. Apple has e simple design on there stuf but a long and a hard way to get there.. and if your dad can do one easy, then you can have one for free 😉 be happy for it.

    Wood is not friendly to the ipad. Better with rubber.
