Calm trees iPad stand is part of “Sample project” promoted by designer/creative director Toshihiko Sakai.
There are so many trees that are not suitable for building material because of their shapes. These trees are often left in woods as transporting those trees is too expensive to justify. Sample project has bought those trees and created new products. Using timber from forest thinning is becoming a popular way to make use of trees, but Sample project has another approach in order to rejuvenate the Japanese forest industry.
“Calm trees” iPad stand looks like a polished stone. It is handmade and polished one by one, so each product has different shape. Size S can hold iPad only horizontally, and Size L can hold iPad either horizontally or vertically. A simple but practical iPad stand. Compatible with iPad/iPad2
