allan ospina: idostand

industrial designer allan ospina has developed ‘idostand’ a versatile iPhone case that can stand on a portrait or cinema position at a perfect angle. it features two seamless arms allowing users to do facetime, watch videos or simply have it on a position where you can easily see who’s calling. the unique product requires no extra parts and features a hinged closure system to make it easy for transportation. despite its slim casing the piece does protect the glass and edges from falls on flat surfaces while exposing the beauty of the phone.

  • Me parece un protector practico, útil, fuerte, novedoso y sobre todo un diseño impecable que es en lo que la mayoría de personas nos fijamos con frecuencia a la hora de comprar este tipo de objetos.
    Felicitaciones, quiero verlo ya en el mercado mundial.
