Hi! thanks for checking out our project. With your help we would love to make our idea a reality and turn your laptop into a desktop.
Hand made with fine natural basswood, Desktop Chair simply holds your Apple laptop and turns it into a desktop with an external display, a keyboard and a mouse, allowing you to work comfortably by raising your eye level for better posture, less strain on your eyes, neck and back.
'Laptop on the go, Desktop at home'.
How does it work?
Fits all current (and recent) Apple laptops
Desktop Chair is one-size-fits-all design. It fits virtually all Apple laptops with a height of 1.2" (30mm) or less, regardless of the shape, with or without a cover, now and the future.
Compatible Apple laptops includes:
- All MacBook Pro models
- All MacBook models
- All MacBook Air models
- All PowerBook G4 models
- and probably all models in the future :)
- yes, of course iPads!
Desktop Chair will be made of a five-layer ply of quality natural basswood for structural strength and fine texture. It will be hand-made in the same factory that produces furniture for European brands.
MOKU is a Japan-based atelier run by Masayuki & Hideyuki (son & pop), a dynamic duo combining the expertise in modern industrial design and traditional woodcrafting.
The idea of Desktop Chair, our first project, came from our own genuine need for something which we feel comfortable putting our laptop on while working on a large screen.
After making two for ourselves, people kept asking us to make the same thing. It was so many that we couldn't keep up with the requests! Making custom-made woodcrafts is something of our speciality, but making them in a batch and delivering to many others is a whole new story...
So here is where you come in...
Luckily, with a help of our partner furniture factory, we managed to develop a way to produce in a fairly large quantity while maintaining the quality. But we still need funding for production and for setting up a distribution system in North America.
So we decided to put the Desktop Chair's fate into the hands of people of the global village and start a project at IndieGoGo, a social funding platform that is truly open to and supportive for international projects. Please pledge and make this happen!
