Foldable: The World's Lightest and Thinnest Portable Laptop Stand 2016

Project Description

The fusion of traditional Japanese technology and material not only makes the lightest and thinnest, but also the most portable and durable laptop stand The Foldable is light-weight and beneficial not only to the environment, but also to the mechanics. Its unique truss structure and ergonomic design improves stability, betters typing posture, and reduces body stress in the neck, shoulder and fingers. It is an innovation that brings strength and portability. This uniquely designed paper laptop stand features heat dissipation, unprecedented portability and improvement in user productivity. Japanese Origami engineering creates the lightest and thinnest laptop stand at just 15g and 0.8mm

Foldable is only 0.8mm, and can be carried stress-free as it can be stored within the smallest gaps, such as in the space within closed laptops, and despite its thinness, it passes the load capacity test of 10kg. By using the Foldable, a comfortable computer usage environment can be made anytime and anywhere.

The Made-In-Japan “Kurotani Washi” with a history of more than 800 years creating a durable, portable and adorable laptop stand To achieve not only the thinnest and lightest, but also a portable and durable laptop stand, the traditional Kurotani Washi paper is the best material by far. Made with 100% natural material, including hybrid mulberry tree, it is strong against folding, bending, stretching. Kurotani Washi is one of the highest quality washi papers and was designated as Kyoto Prefecture Designated Intangible Cultural Heritage.

At first glance, it may appear as a paper, but through a simple process, the Foldable transforms into a daily necessity for people of all ages. Its extraordinary mobility is truly hard to live without. The Foldable not only safe and friendly for children and pets, but also serve as a platform to enjoy Origami culture. With the integration of traditional Japanese culture and technology, we transform paper into a laptop stand that provides convenience and solutions to daily stress, and flexibility to users to transform it into whatever they prefer as a stand for tablets, smartphones and many more. As Kurotani Washi produces a smooth and rich texture, the Foldable provides users the ultimate experience to feel the touch of the craftsman’ s hands as they enter a less stressful and more convenient world.
