Have you ever found yourself propping up your iPad against a stack of books or improvising with a stationary box to get the right typing angle for your laptop? Well, the ingenious team at PUNCUBE Gear has an elegant solution that's hiding in plain sight. The Puncube Workelf, at its core, serves as a document folder for organizing and safeguarding all your vital paperwork. However, its innovative design allows it to seamlessly transform into a versatile laptop stand, an iPad holder, a phone mount, and even a convenient writing pad. While traditional paper folders have remained largely unchanged for almost a century, the Puncube Workelf introduces a subtle update, seamlessly integrating into our digital-centric era while remaining a dependable document holder.
The Puncube Workelf serves as a thoughtful reminder that technology isn't meant to entirely replace stationery; rather, these two worlds can coexist harmoniously and symbiotically. With a form factor as slim as your typical binder or document folder, it boasts a unique flap-based design that enables it to morph into a multi-angle stand, catering not only to one but all your portable devices. Featuring a selection of eight different 'modes,' the Puncube Workelf effortlessly transitions from a paper organizer to a platform for mounting your laptop, tablet, and smartphone. It also doubles as a clipboard, a display stand, a book holder, and a slanted platform ideal for sketching or drawing, whether on paper or a tablet PC.
The beauty of the Puncube Workelf lies in its clever design, leveraging its structural materials, elements of origami, and meticulous detailing to craft a modern, utilitarian stationery piece. When closed, it resembles a typical A4 folder, capable of securely holding A4-sized documents with the aid of a metal clamp. Moreover, it neatly slots into your office shelf or folder holder, ensuring quick and easy access. Weighing a mere 290 grams, it's lightweight and perfect for carrying under your arm or in your backpack.
However, when you require more than just a document holder, the Puncube Workelf unfolds a world of possibilities. It smoothly transforms into an angled laptop stand, elevating your device to a comfortable 30° angle. This not only brings the laptop screen to eye level, reducing neck strain, but also tilts the keyboard toward you for more convenient typing. The laptop stand format is also ideal for use as a drawing pad or for working on a tablet, allowing you to doodle, draw, or write with ease. If you're looking for a more traditional tablet stand, the Workelf adapts into an easel for your iPad, holding it at a convenient 60° angle. Cleverly designed cutout fins in the Puncube Workelf secure your iPad at the perfect viewing angle for video calls or content consumption. If you happen to have a smaller device like a smartphone, the Workelf features a smaller set of cutout fins for your phone as well.
The Workelf's shape-shifting design offers a total of five different angles, including a fully vertical option. The folder's three-panel structure allows it to practically stand upright, making it perfect for propping up your documents for easy reading. The same metal clasp that secures your papers can double as a lip or holder for your laptop when using the Workelf as a laptop stand.The Puncube Workelf comes in a variety of six colors to suit your preferences. You even have the option of adding a clip-on whiteboard accessory, allowing you to jot down ideas or make temporary notes and schematics that can be easily wiped clean for a fresh start. The all-in-one folder and gadget stand starts at just $29 for a single unit, though it's recommended to opt for bundles, with a three-pack available for $59
