About this project
The Wedge Stand
Wedge is simply our ideal iPad stand. It's anodized silver aluminum, meant to complement the pure quality of Apple's device. We wanted a stand that we could leave on our kitchen counter or coffee table, that would blend in with the background but be ready for use with no fuss. The Wedge works for both orientations of the iPad and leaves the Home button accessible.
As designers of hundreds of consumer products, we've made connections with manufacturers throughout the United States and Asia. Ideally, we'd like to support US manufacturers and make the piece locally in Pennsylvania. Wedge is very easy to produce by design. By pledging your support, we will be able to raise the funds to pay for the tooling, assembly and shipping of these stands.
Behind The Wedge
The idea for the Wedge started with a handmade wood stand we made and sold on the web. It was featured in the Wall Street Journal as one of the iPad-related products that matched Apple's clean, minimal design. We love the wood stand, but each one was handmade and labor-intensive. While working on some aluminum extrusions at our day job, we got the idea for a stand that would match the high quality finish of the iPad. Aluminum is the perfect material to support the iPad, thanks to its lightness, durability, and beautiful finish. Using an elegant form that takes advantage of the inherent strength of the material, we created a stand that epitomizes beautiful, minimal design.
We hope Wedge will kickstart our own personal design studio. If you'd like to help Spruce create our own design and get a few cool iPad stands in the process, please pledge your support. Tell people about us and the Wedge. You'll be at the start of something big! Thanks for sharing and checking us out! -Eli and Leah
