A stand with easy assembly and expansion that makes practical use of the traditional craft techniques of “origami.”
Even though it is paper, it is a unique product that can be used with laptop computers, smartphones, and tablets. It uses the highest-grade Kyoto washi, Kurotani washi, which is particularly efficient with folding and curving.
Just by folding, it becomes a solid truss structure, so its strength and stability are ample as a stand. It has been designed based on ergonomics, so for example when using it as a laptop stand, it leads you to a natural typing posture.
It’s easy to carry, weighing only 15 grams and just 0.8 millimeters thick. The unique feel of washi and luxurious appearance add to its fascination as well. The latest model, Foldable 2, is also on sale, made with “Sekka-shibori” traditional dyeing.
Price: ¥2,138 to ¥2,678 (11 kinds)
Manufacturer: ECBB Co. in Shibuya Ward, Tokyo
