Levi & Eric of FineGrain have submitted their new project, the Coburns, to mmminimal. We’ve previously featured their Bowden + Sheffield Minimalist iPad Cases – a project that went on to successfully reach its Kickstarter goal.
FineGrain has returned with these simple, compact, and cleanly crafted wooden iPad stands and have once again turned to Kickstarter for help with funding.
For more information read on, or, if you’re convinced head over to their Kickstarter page to pledge.
Our objective behind the COBURNS was simple: design compact, versatile, and beautiful iPad stands. Our focus was to create a minimal, clean look with an organic material that compliments the reﬁned feel of the iPad.
We found strong, exotic hardwoods to use for the COBURNS. The lighter wood is a rare and limited Bird’s eye Maple from a local wood source. The darker wood is Pau Ferro, which comes from South America. Each pair is like a family, made together from start to ﬁnish. Once cut to shape, they are chamfered (to complement the iPad), branded, and ﬁnished by hand.
All of the work that has gone into perfecting the COBURNS has produced a thoroughly better stand for the iPad.They provide almost unlimited viewing angles for your iPad in both portrait and landscape. This is the main advantage over most of the other iPad stands on the market.
They are compact, stowable, and can go just about anywhere. The magnets are so much fun that nobody can help but play with them, and they are completely safe to use with your iPad. They won’t damage the screen or any internal parts.
The COBURNS come in diﬀerent sizes to precisely ﬁt the:
• iPad Mini
• iPad Mini with Retina
• iPad 3 and 4
• iPad Air
