Twelve South SurfacePad for iPhone 6 Strikes a Balance Between Aesthetic and Protection

iPhone 6’s beauty and thinnest are also its greatest weakness. It could be scarred easily, but for non-conforming, style-conscious users, to wrap the device up in plastic case for protection is an insult to phone’s design.

Available for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the SurfacePad features Twelve South’s trademark premium quality, boasting a buttery soft Nappa leather that gives your lovely device the protection it needs without beefing up the form factor.

Twelve South GhostStand – Desktop Stand for MacBook

it is no coincidence that the new Twelve South GhostStand sounds a little eerily similar to the iconic Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck, cos’ that awesome plastic that was designed for our butts is actually the inspiration behind this desktop stand for MacBook. if you are fan of mid-century, post modern decor, this transparent stand might just be your cup of English Breakfast. granted that plastic is hardly a material of choice for a laptop stand, but by employing a crisscrossed blades design, this desktop stand for MacBook has in fact achieved two things: first, it is now completely sturdy enough for your laptop to rest on; and secondly, it is aesthetically pleasing, allowing the stand to blend seamlessly with any contemporary decor (we thought it will turn out best against white background and white themed furniture).
