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.
Frequently asked questions
For which iPad models is your stand designed for?
Our Normal Size iPad Stand works with the following iPad models: iPad Pro 11.0″ | iPad Pro 10.5″ | iPad Pro 9.7″ | iPad 2018 | iPad 2017 | iPad Air 2 | iPad Air | iPad 4 | iPad 3 | iPad 2
Our Mini iPad Stand works with the following iPad Mini models: iPad mini / iPad mini 2 / iPad mini 3 / iPad mini 4 / iPad mini 5
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.
In the Press
I didn’t think I’d ever get excited about an iPad stand. Its an iPad Stand that Jony Ive could be proud of.
These are classy stands, and I really like them. They get two thumbs up from me, both style and functionality are top notch.
Cult of Mac
If functional design is what you care about, this is definitely one of the coolest and most useful iPad stands we have seen.
A minimalist stand that matches the iPad's elegance.
With Yohann, you get the best of both worlds: a simple, minimalist design – plus the flexibility of multiple angles.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the iPad stand purchased some months ago. It is stable, lightweight, and beautiful. My friends and family who have seen it and used it all remark on its efficiency. I am pleased to own this iPad stand.
I’ve had the iPad stand for the iPad Pro 12.9” for several years and it’s as elegant and useful today as the day I got it. The stand holds the iPad in several positions effortlessly and the craftsmanship and beauty of the walnut tree is superb.
Beautiful and timeless design made from the sustainable material wood. I use it on a daily basis since years.
This unique design is an excellent product. It is versatile and holds your IPAD at a many angles in many ways. It is also an attractive design and looks very nice sitting out on the table. There is also outstanding customer service. I contacted them and received immediate response and help.
This product is deftly designed and fantastically functional. I never use my iPad without this accessory. The stand does everything you’d hope; it has multi angles, easily switches between landscape and portrait, and it amplifies sound. Since I purchased my first one I have purchased several more for my business and my friends and family. I believe in the product and the company. Anytime I use it out in public I receive questions or compliments on it.
Love the look and flexibility of the different viewing positions.
I appreciate a simple design to accomplish a needed function. I especially like the iPad Stand because it is made of wood. I’m a wood worker so I think you guys have done a good Job. Keep up the good work!
What a work of art! Well designed, crafted for modern living…Beauty!
Have had mine about a week and love it. It’s always at the right angle whatever you are doing!!
I mainly use it on my lap and now have both hands free. Very stable and puts the iPad at a nice height.
I loved my Yohann’s so much I gave them as Christmas gifts – they were a big hit. Problem is now I don’t have one!n
I am using my Yohann for a month now, and I’m really impressed with its functionality! I use it everywhere in the house and I love to use it in bed watching movies.
I received my Yohann last week and you need to know just how much we love it! The design is absolutely lovely and sturdy…. everyone who has seen it wants one! Congratulations on a wonderful design and I wish you many successes.
Like a piece of art for my iPad. Love it!
I use it for everything in the iPad. It’s great for jigsaw puzzles, too.
