FLOAT Shelf—The Ultimate Shelf for iMacs & Apple Displays

$47,855

 The Float Shelf declutters desktops, freeing up valuable workspace.

  

 

                                         

 

The Float Shelf is the ultimate, and most fun, shelf for all iMacs and Apple Displays, both Cinema and Thunderbolt.

 Display collections of cherished keepsakes on your Float Shelf.

Apple fans and aficionados will appreciate the Float Shelf.

 Keep items of inspiration close at hand with a Float Shelf.

The Float Shelf's patented, bracketless design lets the shelf slide easily into position, then just geometry and gravity hold the shelf solidly and securely in place.

Display personal items that might otherwise clutter your desktop.

Machined from a solid aluminum extrusion, a Float Shelf readily supports up to ten pounds (4.5 kg).

 A Float Shelf can botanically beautify your workspace.

The Float Shelf's slim tapered-profile and anodized surface complement Apple's minimalist aesthetic and high quality finish.

 One more thing, less is more.

Elevate personal items and computer peripherals off your desktop.

Other iMac shelves are one-third the size of a Float Shelf, are made of thin bent metal, have painted finishes, hold little more than a single hard drive, and because of the brackets, bolts, and shims they require, can be difficult to install.

The Float Shelf fits all iMacs and Apple displays, both Thunderbolt and Cinema. Float Shelf dimensions: 

  • Float Shelf for 17", 20" & 21.5" iMacs & 20" & 23" Cinema displays (6.5” x 18” / 16.5 cm x 45.7 cm)
  • Float Shelf for 24" & 27" iMacs; 27" Thunderbolt displays; and 24", 27" & 30" Cinema displays (6.5” x 22” / 16.5 cm x 56 cm)

Steve King—Designer of the Float Shelf

Steve has had two successful Kickstarter campaigns (Hand Stylus and Remora) which were the most popular crowdfunded products of their kind. 

The Hand Stylus raised $313K from 7,500 backers and received rave reviews in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, the Verge, WIRED, and many other tech publications.

 The REMORA Stylus & Pen holder raised $30K from 750 backers.

 The Hand Stylus and Remora are available at prismdesigns.com

  

 

Risks and challenges

With thirty years of domestic and international manufacturing experience, and with two successful Kickstarter campaigns under our belt (Hand Stylus & Remora), we know what's required to take a product from concept to completion.

Because we're committed to delivering the highest quality product possible, we give quality control a higher priority than delivery schedule. Thus, there's always a risk of a shipping delay caused by quality issues that take extra time to correct.

That said, we've twice demonstrated we can deliver high quality products on time.
