The ideal combination of high functionality and ease of use, with six different positions, the elegant Yohann iPad stand is a diligent helper for a more comfortable and versatile use of the iPad.
WHY WE DESIGNED IT
While the iPad’s minimal design is great for mobility, it can become difficult to use comfortably for long periods of time. So we designed this wooden iPad stand as a way to provide comfortable, easy support for iPad users, while at the same time creating something that adds an aesthetic value to the home environment.
Function and aesthetics
We aspired to create a product with a furniture-like feel, that was at once both functional and elegant, capable of touching our emotions and inspiring us in its everyday use. Something that we loved having around our home or office. A product whose shape followed its function, reduced to the necessary, but also providing an attractive appearance when not in use.
Our crowdfunding journey
To get support to begin production of our patented design—and to see if there were others out there who think like us—we launched the original wooden iPad stand with a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Our hopes where exceeded: there was a yearning desire among people like us for products that they could connect with, and see the value in. Thanks to these like-minded souls our Kickstarter achieved 275% funding of its initial goal and became the most successful of its category.
Today, we take pride in knowing that the Yohann iPad stand is still the only iPad holder on the market that comes with this level of functionality and aesthetics.
WHAT YOU GET
The Yohann wooden iPad stand does more than simply provide support. It enhances your general iPad experience.
The three angles are carefully considered to allow you to position your iPad in just the right way, for practically any situation.
PORTRAIT AND LANDSCAPE
You’re not bound to one orientation, either. Use all angles in both landscape and portrait view.
Cuddle up with your iPad in bed, or on the sofa. Enjoy a hands-free use on soft surfaces like your duvet or a soft pillow.
Use your iPad on the Yohann iPad stand even while charging.
Enjoy crystal clear sound thanks to its inbuilt speaker holes.
This iPad stand is a unique combination of high functionality, intuitive use and consistent reduction to the minimum needed.
Most iPad holders that provide multiple viewing angles require different moving parts in order to work. Parts that could wear, break, and make it complicated and bulky to use. We searched for a design that allowed for the easiest use possible with still highest versatility. We reversed the approach of solving the problem of providing multiple angles. This iPad stand is made solely from one piece of wood, without moving parts. It’s designed to move with the iPad, supported by three different footprints.
The general shape and the position of the footprints follow the function and are derived from a structural calculation to provide the best functionality and highest stability. We extensively cycle-tested many different variations and prototypes to determine the ideal composition of angles for a more practical use and to arrive at a final design, a light, thin profile that’s optically reduced to the bare minimum.
What we believe in
Our products are crafted with four principles that we deeply care about.
A holistic, reduced design that combines exceptional functionality with simplicity.
The use of high-quality materials in terms of aesthetics and haptics, while minimising our environmental impact.
The enduring combination of local traditional craftsmanship and modern precision technology.
A sustainable process from start to finish. From sourcing the materials and production, to ethical working conditions, social engagement, and transport, until the product reaches the hands of the customer.

Does Yohann iPad stand also work for iPads with a fixed protective case?
Yohann iPad stands are made for uncovered iPads only and do not work with any fixed protective case. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, there are many cases on the market that vary in thickness and shape and it is not possible to make a YOHANN iPad stand that fits all. Additionally we think the iPad is a beauty in design and material itself and should not be covered by a cheap looking protective case. To protect your iPad when travelling we recommend a loose sleeve like the Apple Leather Sleeve.
Do the iPad stands also work for tablets of other brands?
Yohann iPad stands are made for Apple iPads. We can’t tell, if they work also with other tablets. There are too many different tablets on the market with individual sizes, thicknesses, weights, etc.
