Elevation Stand, A Stunning Space-Saving Desk Stand For iMac & Thunderbolt Display

From the same people who brought you the incredibly amazing Elevation Dock for iPhone, comes yet another stunning Apple-inspired accessory. This time it's a unibody stand made for the iMac and Thunderbolt Display. Machined from solid, meticulously finished aluminum, Elevation Lab's new Elevation Stand is designed to raise your iMac up by 66mm to a more comfortable and ergonomic viewing height while taking up less desk space compared to other stands and platforms. With a seamless, screwless unibody construction - the Elevation Stand's hollowed interior lets you store peripherals such as an external backup hard drive or other items, while a chamfered hole opening at the back creates a clean cable management.

Every stand will get glass bead blasted, acid etched, electro-chemically polished, and deep anodized. It's the same finish we apply to Elevation Dock and Apple puts on Macbook Pros.

It takes a 90 million pounds press, the same machine used to help make the Tesla Model S, to extrude the profile of the Elevation Dock from a block of aluminum, which is then refined using glass bead blasting and anodizing techniques to closely match the smooth finish of the iMac's silver metal body. 

Rather than creating a simple square or rectangle, the flared design of the Elevation Stand closely follows the flared shape of the pedestal base. This results in a more space-saving footprint while remaining true to the native design lines of the iMac and other Apple external displays.

To keep your iMac from moving or sliding atop the Elevation Stand, a NanoPad material covers the top surface that comes in contact with the bottom side of the iMac's base (or Apple any Apple Display), essentially locking the two together very securely using a strong micro suction technology. Although Elevation Lab's Elevation Stand isn't as versatile as Twelve South's HiRise stand in that it doesn't have any height adjustable levels, it is a more elegant solution to both raise the height of your display as well as store items away from sight.

Elevation Labs are back on Kickstarter asking the community to help fund its Elevation Stand project like it successfully has with the inception of the Elevation Dock. You'll be able to pre-order the Elevation Stand at a reduced price for $59, instead of its full retail price of over $100 when it begins to ship in September.
