About

Laptops have their keyboard and screen attached to each other, forcing the user to sit in an unhealthy posture with forward leaning head. This causes a spinal and muscular overload resulting in chronic neck and back pain. If you are a regular laptop user, you don't need further explanation...

Designed for mobile workers

OviStand Rise is our third generation ergonomic product that we launch via Kickstarter. 

It folds out in a wink and raises your laptop screen higher than most stands do. You can now work comfortably anywhere, every day. Its minimalist design fits perfectly with your MacBook or other laptop. 

OviStand Rise elevates your laptop up to 18.5 cm (7.3 inch), bringing your screen at eyelevel

Quick and easy setup in 3 seconds

The OviStand Rise has a unique latching mechanism; just slide the bracing wire though the slot in the bottom plate, fold the side panels to the front until they snap into latching position, and DONE!   

In a few simple steps you create an elegant but sturdy laptop tower

The lightest foldable laptop tower for mobile workers

Thanks to its unique design and a super strong high-tech composite material we have created the lightest foldable laptop tower you can find, weighing only 330 grams (11.6 oz)!

                                               OviStand Rise is made of ultra light but super strong material

Designed for the perfect posture

We have tested many laptop working conditions with different sizes of laptops and users. We found out that the most common setting was between 17 and 19 cm height. That is exactly what we made. The tower is 17.5 cm high and as laptops extend a bit on the tilted tower platform, they actually rise up to 18.5 cm (7.3 inch)

Can you tell the difference?

Also for tall people

Even for tall persons this laptop stand brings your laptop to an ergonomic height.

Folds up to thin packet fitting in any laptop sleeve or bag

The OviStand Rise folds down into a packet of only 8 mm thick that is easily stored under your MacBook or other laptop, fitting in any sleeve or laptop bag.  


Protective microfiber bag

It comes in a practical microfiber bag protecting it and your laptop while carrying around.The bag is also ideal to clean the screen of you laptop.

Making OviStand Rise the ultimate ergonomic mobility solution!

Elegant design making your laptop float in the air

The OviStand Rise has been developed with MacBook in mind. The minimalist design with a brushed aluminum surface makes the MacBook float in the air while still offering a robust platform.

Strong and robust

Although super light, the OviStand Rise foldable laptop stand is very sturdy. It has been tested with a load of 30 kg (66 lbs)!

By folding the side panels a super strong U-profile is created that can withstand very high loads, making this one of the strongest foldable laptop towers that you can find.   

The hinges have been tested up to 80,000 times of bending by TUV Rheinland in Germany without a trace of damage. That is equivalent of more than 100 years of daily usage!

A secure latching mechanism

The bracing wire keeps the tower in shape by pulling the bottom plate and the laptop platform towards each other. Four small notches snap into cavities in these plates which keeps the structure firmly in shape.

Very small footprint fitting cramped desks

Thanks to a small but very stable base the OviStand Rise foldable laptop stand takes less space than the laptop on it, so it is ideal for usage on cramped desks.

With the OviStand Rise you create more space as the base is much smaller than your laptop

Super stable, your laptop is secured

Thanks to its design and by applying silicone anti-slip bumpers both at the top and bottom, the OviStand Rise tower stand is fixated on your desk while the laptop sticks firmly on the platform.

Even when tilted 15 degrees, both the stand and the laptop remain on their place and stable!

Thanks to the silicone bumpers (no glue!) both the stand and the laptop stay firmly in place even at a steep angle

Development

At Ovilli we love to create simple but effective designs that also look very beautiful. We have checked other foldable laptop stands. Most of them consist of many parts and as you know, every part can fail; screws can loosen, hinges might wear out, brackets might snap off, all resulting in an unusable product. Choosing a solution of only two extremely sturdy parts (we don’t count the silicone bumpers) makes the risk of failure very very small. That’s why we give you a full year warranty.

                                                             From paper to carton to the real thing...
From paper to carton to the real thing...

This laptop tower stand was for the above mentioned reasons a true challenge to design. We had had the idea for it for more than 2 years but it always ended up in overly complex solutions until we came up with the concept of a bracing wire that could hold the folded construction in place and create a very sturdy platform.

We tested quite some samples with different angles and sizes, resulting in very elegant stand that supports all MacBooks and laptops up to 15.6”.

It folds out within seconds and is the most compact and lightweight foldable laptop tower available, fitting in any laptop sleeve or bag making it the best possible solution for you!

 Our promise

This our third Kickstarter campaign and each time we delivered on what we promised. All our backers received their rewards (more than 90% in time, the rest had a delay due to the mail service) and they were also very happy with what they got. 

Here are some comments:

You have been the ONLY  Laptop Stand campaign in the past few years who really delivered a great  LAPTOP Stand to all customers and got it done! You did an amazing job!!!

The other campaigns: Disappeared, delivered plastic and so on...

I wish you all the best in future

Ali

Thank to Ovilli, that was super fast response to the problem and resolution...on the weekend! :)

Brad

Hi, I received mine in France and it is even better than I expected. I intend to keep it in my bag and use it when traveling. I hope it will last a few years.

Thanks for this clever and well done project.

Francois

After our successful launch of the initial OviStand range on Kickstarter we were able to start our business. 

Our customers are also very pleased with the stands and our avarage rating is 4.7 out of 5! 

Also this time we are very confident that you will be very pleased with the OviStand Rise!

Risks and challenges

At Ovilli we already have more than 2 years of experience with the high-tech sandwich material that we also applied in our previous OviStand range. We know it is incredibly strong and that the hinges can bent so often that if you make some calculations, it will last for more than 100 years of daily usage!
So we are very sure about its functionality and durability.

We have a first class manufacturer that has co-created all our prototypes and also contracted a very experienced manufacturer that can supply us with the bracing wires.

The only risk is that we might shift in time as some key components are not readily available as first the tooling has to be made. But this delay will be no more than a few months. You will receive your OviStand Rise for sure!
