Designed “for the new work day,” Free Stand by Coalesse previewed at NeoCon 2012 earlier this week. The vision of Stephan Copeland, Free Stand will be available in early 2013. Foldable, height-adjustable, and lightweight, Free Stand is a piece of brilliant simplicity—an example of the type of paradoxical genius we often miss but later cannot live without.

Portable Laptop Table Features Smart Design
The laptop may be ideal in terms of portability, but the lap part leaves much to be desired. By now, most of us who work with computers realize how physically taxing it can be to work in an unergonomic position. And many of us work from home, either during the day or after hours, putting us in close contact with our laptops—usually in very bad positions, as with our computers on our laps. But Free Stand is an ideal solution “for solo work on a couch or in a lounge chair, whether home or in an office enclave.”
In white or black, Free Stand folds, so users can tuck it away neatly when not in use. It also includes a smart carrying handle—move it to and from work or from room to room as needed. The table snaps into position, offering a generous work surface for laptops, tablets, and other devices. Thanks to Coalesse, those of us who have to bring work home (or those lucky ones who work in homey offices equipped with sofas) can do so easily—with maximum comfort and minimal space: “Free Stand is for almost anyone who needs a place to land comfortably.”
About the Manufacturer: Just as the name implies, manufacturer Coalesse is the millennial answer to the merging of life and work. The company recognizes that the line between the two is increasingly blurred. Just so, consumers want work furnishings that they can live with (and in), and Coalesse creates them. The company’s product line includes everything from conference tables to lounge chairs, wardrobes to lecterns. But beyond a mere product line, Coalesse is a philosophy for a new age: “Coalesse is a cause. It’s a belief in the solution, more than in the object. It’s a belief that experiences matter and space should be inspiring.”
