i have an insatiable penchant for beautifully designed gadgets and accessories, which also explains why i’m blogging about them. i’ll be honest: when i first laid eyes on the RokForm RokStand V.1 Adjustable Desktop Stand, i like it immediately. that is, until i saw its $169 price tag. i wonder how many would love to prop up their iPhone so much that would justify such an amount for a stand? sure, it’s CNC machined from Billet 6061 T-6 aluminum and anodized finished, and it has precision high speed bearing and cam adjustment et cetera. but do we really need ‘high speed bearing’ for something that we probably adjust like once or twice a month?

price aside, the RokForm is no doubt a beautiful stand and it features a 6 angles of adjustment and has a built in natural sound amplification. well, it can hold up an iPad too, if that’s what you are thinking. i guess other factors such as hand assembled, manually quality checks and individually numbered, does add all to the cost. RokForm Rokstand V.1 Adjustable Desktop Stand is available via RokForm web store and are available in several colors.
