About this project
International Shipping: We have reduced our international shipping price, but can't make a change to the reward section. If anyone is overseas and would like an Oona, please add an additional $15 for shipping, instead of the $25. For anyone who has already given the extra $25 for shipping, please click on the “manage pledge” button and adjust your pledge value accordingly. *For every 3 or few Oonas (Ooni?) you only need to pay 1 shipping cost.
Multiple Oonas: If you're interested in purchasing multiple Oonas with one pledge, you can! Just select the $25 reward level for standard Oonas or the $50 reward level for Limited Edition Oonas and then change the pledge value to a multiple of $25 or $50. After that, send us a note telling us what's up!
Growing up in the Silicon Valley, the three of us have always had a passion for design. We regularly bounce ideas off each other for new products we think would be cool and useful. We are submitting to you our very first product, The Oona.
We wanted to make a stand that can do as much as your smart phone does. A “stand” in name only, The Oona can help you utilize all the functions of your smart phone, such as:
- A GPS on the windshield of your car
- A reference device on a white board
- The ability to mount your smart phone to a tripod to take photos or video
- The gift to keep your hands free while watching a movie on your smart phone
- A simple stand to keep your phone in view on your desk at work
- Many more applications, we can't possibly write all of them down
In addition to being versatile and functional, we wanted The Oona to be sleek and minimal. There are too many cheap, plastic stands that might hold up your phone, but are too noticeable and bulky. The Oona is made of aircraft grade aluminum that is polished and anodized for a strong scratch resistant finish, fits in your pocket and is practically invisible when in use.
We have designed, workshopped and prototyped The Oona, and need your help to produce it. This is our first step as designers and innovators, and with your support we will finalize The Oona’s design, manufacture it in bulk and bring it to market. We've got a couple of other ideas in the hopper, and hopefully we'll get a chance to move forward with them after The Oona, and begin our careers. It’s all up to you.
