If you’re one of the millions of people who spend their days typing on a laptop, check out FLIO : it’s a slim, collapsible wooden laptop stand that offers an ergonomic viewing height and keeps an angle for easy typing anywhere you go. It was created by Vlad Butucariu, a young designer living in the Netherlands , and is the thinnest wooden laptop stand to date, measuring less than 10mm in thickness. Made from three thin wooden panels that stack together like a small jigsaw puzzle, FLIO elevates your laptop to keep it cool and responsive, while also keeping your posture straight and your wrists at a healthier , more natural angle while you’re working. Stacked, this stand is only 8mm / 0.31″ thick and so light, that it will be almost unnoticeable while on the go. As an added bonus, it’s made from sustainable, high quality wood , so it’s as ethical as it is sturdy and affordable.
