Minimalism, or voluntary simplicity, isn't as simple as it seems. It's all well and good to simplify something, but it's only worthwhile if the simple embodies the complex.

Having your phone on your tabletop or in a standard phone dock limits your ability to use it to its fullest. What if there were a stand that is simple to use, enhances usability, and just happens to be nice to look at?

We've designed TILT to enhance your smartphone experience while you work. TILT is made from a high-quality aluminum body, which serves as a solid, elegant structure, between two thermoplastic rubber end caps that provide non-slip/non-scratch contact points.

View and use, without removing. The unique shape of TILT allows you to keep your phone upright for viewing, then simply rock it back 45 degrees for a comfortable angle while swiping and typing.

One size fits all - iPhone, Android, and Windows

iPhone or Android, big or small, with or without a case... TILT just works.

  • Almost any smartphone/case combo fits (see measurements above)
  • Weighted just right to mitigate any unwanted wobble
  • Non-slip rubber end caps keep your device in place and scratch free

Quality is our obsession. Our designers and engineers spent countless hours figuring out the best way to create TILT, ultimately landing on extrusion, CNC machining, and injection molding.

U.S. Made - Because quality is everything

It was also very important to us that we make TILT in the USA. We truly believe in supporting local manufacturing and could think of no better way to ensure only the highest level of craftsmanship is used to produce everything in the very cities we live in.

Exclusive Kickstarter Edition Seal
Exclusive Kickstarter Edition Seal

We cannot make TILT without the help and support of our Kickstarter backers. In recognition of this, we are engraving the bottom of every TILT sold on Kickstarter with a limited edition seal. This seal will never be seen again. As a Kickstarter backer, you are a founding member of our company and our product.
