A stand that coordinates with your room as well as it matches your MacBook.

BookArc möd is a meticulously crafted hardwood MacBook stand that blurs the lines between furniture and technology. Inspired by the remarkable spaces many MacBook owners inhabit, this beautiful arc-shaped stand elevates your MacBook up off your desk for a clean workspace. Delivered in museum-quality packaging, this impressive stand looks more like a fixture for your home than an accessory for your Mac. This beautiful stand is compatible with most MacBook models excluding the new 2016 MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3.

The story behind BookArc möd

A compact notebook. A comfortable desktop.
Same MacBook. 

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 Air, MacBook Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display (BookArc möd is not compatible with the new 2016 MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3).

Finishes that complement your space.

BookArc möd comes in two gorgeous color options for an even better fit with your environment. Choose from a light, bright Birch, or a rich, dark Espresso. Both are made with quality hardwood and look amazing next to the aluminum MacBook.
