We're wrapping up our time here in NYC for the 2011 ICFF show today, but we're just getting through processing all the products/photos, digesting everything we saw during our weeklong trip. A pair of our favorite items from the show floor were these retro-themed iPad and iPhone stand/charging accessories from BKNYdesign that harken back to an era where tablets and smartphones were in the realm of science fiction… Hand constructed from a choice of walnut, cherry or African mahogany, both the V-Luxe and V-Luxe Junior not only give each device a easy to view swivel-tilt housing, but also provide each device an extra compartment which can be used for accessories or in the case of the iPad, an external speaker. They were designed with home use and retail display in mind, definitely evoking smiles amongst those fond of midcentury electronics design.
The V-Luxe began as a Kickstarter project and raised an impressive $5909 with just 37 backers. Now they're ready to share and sell the V-LUxe for $499 and its diminutive sibling for $199.
