Delivered in museum-quality packaging, this impressive stand looks more like a fixture for your home than an accessory for your Mac. This elegant stand is compatible with most MacBook models now including the new MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3.
A compact notebook. A comfortable desktop.
MacBooks are amazing mobile computers – but why not stretch out when you’re home? BookArc möd invites you to dock your MacBook in a luxury wood stand and use your MacBook like a desktop when you’re at home. Connect a widescreen external monitor and your favorite keyboard + mouse and notebook mobility becomes desktop luxury.
Two screens have you seeing double?
Do you have two screens (your MacBook Display and an external Display) fighting for desktop space and your attention? Try making your external Display your only Display by closing your MacBook and running it in Closed Clamshell mode. Just like that, you have a minimal, more spacious workspace and more importantly, your eyes will be focused on one screen, rather than bouncing between two. Your MacBook parked in BookArc möd can help you stay laser-focused on the project before you, while freeing up valuable desk space. You’re welcome.
Using MacBook in Closed Clamshell Mode
Inspired by the masters of furniture design.
Design inspiration for BookArc möd comes from mid-century modern classics like the unparalleled Eames Lounge Chair and the incredible Cherner Armchair. We chose hardwoods and finishes that complement almost any room or studio where elegant arc will live. Along with great looks, this heirloom quality stand is designed with future MacBooks in mind. BookArc möd comes with two soft, interchangeable silicone inserts to fit your MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina display.
“The natural wood finishes give the stand a nice look against the stark metal of the MacBook.”Steven Sande, engadget

BookArc möd FAQs
- How to use your MacBook in Closed Clamshell Mode [video]
- Ok, now why would I want to use my MacBook closed?
Many reasons, but basically it boils down to wanting a portable notebook on the road, and a comfortable desktop computer at home. Using your MacBook closed on a BookArc while connected to your favorite widescreen monitor, keyboard and mouse is truly the best of both worlds.
- Does the new insert for BookArc möd work with the 12-inch MacBook?
The 12-inch MacBook is one of the thinnest they've ever made, so although the new insert for BookArc möd is compatible with the 12-inch, it's not a perfect fit. You can absolutely still use your BookArc but there will be a slight lean when you place your 12-inch MacBook into the new insert.
