Seventh Collaboration Product with Design Office "nendo"!

Smartphone / Tablet PC Stand "megane", Designed

in the Shape of a Pair of Glasses, Goes on Sale


ELECOM CO., LTD. (Head office: Chuo-ku, Osaka, Japan; President: Junji Hada) has teamed up with "nendo", a design office based in Tokyo and Milan specializing in a wide variety of fields, to create their 7th collaboration, the handy "megane" stand for holding smartphones and tablet (slate) PCs, which will go on sale at the end of September.

Elecom, a company focusing not only on the functionality of its products but also on their design, is launching this new and charming design model, the 7th collaboration with design office "nendo". Founded in 2002 primarily by Mr. Oki Sato, "nendo" is a design office that plays an active role in a wide range of fields both in Japan and the rest of the world. Mr. Oki has received numerous design awards and is also highly regarded abroad, having been selected in the past as one of the "100 Most Respected Japanese", and his design office chosen as one of the "Top 100 small-and-mid-sized Japanese Companies" by Newsweek magazine.

This seventh collaboration product is the "megane", a stand for smartphones / tablet PCs in the shape of a pair of glasses. Following from the release of "JAGUCHI" in August, this unique design is a new addition to this creative line of stands. The "megane" is a stand that has the same basic structure as conventional glasses; you open them up before use, and fold them up when not in use. To use this stand, you open up the glasses and use the suction pads fitted in the lens area to attach your smartphone or tablet PC. It can be folded up when not in use, making it perfect as a compact and portable stand. This design gives you a sense of surprise, making the highly designed smartphones and tablet PCs look even more stylish. It comes in two sizes, one for smartphones and one for tablet PCs.

Both stands, for smartphones and for tablet PCs, come in gray, white and blue. The stand for smartphones also comes in three additional colors, black, brown and pink, offering plenty of variety with a total of 6 colors. Both stands have been made in natural and gentle colors, designed to blend in with your living space. Elecom is planning to continue releasing more products in collaboration with "nendo" in the future, so watch this space!
