native union founded by igor duc and john brunner expands its minimal charging dock lineup with the addition of limited edition colors. both ‘dock’ for apple’s ‘iPhone’ and ‘iPad’ will be available in ‘midnight blue’ with gold brushed metal and ‘stone’ with rose gold brushed metal. the models are designed to match the metal apple finishes. the design team at native union is headed by french born fabien nauroy who pushes three main principles through the products – user experience, innovation through materials and attention to detail.

‘customers love our charging docks as not only are they incredibly functional, but their minimal design doesn’t take away from the beauty of your apple device, it accentuates it,’ comments the designer fabien nauroy. ‘when we came to creating new colors for the range, we wanted to stay true to this understated approach and expertly matched the silicone and metal components with the gold and rose gold finishes of your apple watch, iPhone or iPad. the result makes an impact, but retains the same level of refinement and style that exists in all our products.’

the ‘dock lightning’ for ‘iPhone or ‘iPad’ sits firmly on a work desk, nightstand or any flat surface. a slice of aircraft grade aluminum and weighted silicone base support a user’s smartphone or tablet, allowing comfortable use as it recharges. all of native union’s docks are precision engineered without screws and assembled by simply slotting two components together. the native union ‘dock’  is compatible with all lightning port apple products including tablets.
