Nordic Appeal

Nordic Appeal is dedicated to a sustainable mindset. Today we can either choose to produce with sustainability in focus or not. Nordic Appeal walk on a green path and choose to be environmentally friendly - from the wood we use to the paper for business cards.

We produce to the standards of PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and EU ECO-label. It is very important to us to focus on the environment and green solutions.

The Making

I though i might be interesting to see a video of the moulding. The video show how we make our MacBook stand. The MacBook Rack is made the same way but require a different mould.

The wood is pressed for about 4 minutes at 5 tons of pressure. The moulding process require skills and is time consuming, but like a bit of magic!

After moulding we want to use a computer controlled machine to make the cord loops, the corners and other details. It is this last part we seek $5,000 for. The mould cost approximately $8,000 which is what we put into the project if successfully funded.

The MacBook Rack - A space saver and eco-friendly MacBook stand.

The MacBook Rack is a vertical MacBook stand and is the perfect choice if you prefer to connect your MacBook to the Apple Display. Having your MacBook in the vertical stand will save space on your desk and put focus on the main display.

The vertical stand is constructed like a bicycle rack so your MacBook will be upright. When you use the MacBook in closed state it will be using less energy and keep you MacBook cooler.

The MacBook Rack is made in Denmark from sustainably forested woodland.

Save space

Having a vertical MacBook stand will save space and look smart. It’s a simple design in sustainable wood.

Easy to use

The vertical MacBook stand is easy to use when you work on a secondary display in clamshell mode. It is very practical and you can easily take your MacBook and leave your cable in the stand.

Oak and walnut

We make the stand in oak and walnut. Get it in oak if you want it light. Get it in walnut if you want it dark and rich.

Thank You for your support!

Your support is very valuable for us and will help us keep making beautiful accessories for you Apple Mac.

Risks and challenges

We currently make these products by hand. This is a very inefficient and an inaccurate way of making them. This results in very expensive and labour intensive products.

This funding will pay for a CNC program meaning a machine will do the basic work with high precision and accuracy. This way the end product will less expensive and more precisely crafted.
