BookArc möd for MacBook - Walnut

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. BookArc möd is compatible with all MacBooks, and is available in three finishes: Birch, Walnut and Espresso.

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. (Apple calls this feature "closed-clamshell mode" - we call it the best of both worlds).

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.

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 wood finishes that complement most any room or studio this elegant arc will live in. 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 all current MacBooks. When necessary, we design and offer new inserts to fit new generations of Apple MacBooks. In fact, our original BookArc, introduced five years ago, still fits the newest MacBooks like a charm.

Take your pick of three finishes.

BookArc möd comes in three gorgeous color options for an even better fit with your environment. Choose from a light, bright Birch, a soft brown Walnut or a rich, dark Espresso. All three choices are made with quality hardwoods and look amazing next to the aluminum MacBook. Each BookArc ships with inserts designed to hold MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display. Which will you choose?
