Monitor arms have effectively increased our user experience when working infront of a monitor screen.  They provide greater dynamic flexibility while working allowing user adjustment.  As technology rapidly moves forward, the products are quickly changing also.  As Laptop technology advanced the user demand grew.

Herman Miller engadged with Convert Studios to develop a laptop holder that easily mounts to their monitor arms to support various commercial laptops and that keeps within the brand and aesthetics of the Herman Miller products.

Using the Monitor Arm as inspiration, we looked at the function, user experience, materials and finishes and product fitment.  Security was a big factor to prevent theft of laptops in workplaces.

User adjustment was important and the quality of materials to keep users expectations high with their expensive items.  Closing the laptop when mounted was key, so we created adjustable rotating clips to allow laptops being closed when on the support.

Final Design

Clean aesthetics, materials and finishes match the support arm.  Quick and easy to install and 100% dismantable to recycle.  Supplied to Herman Miller in an 'out-of-box' solutions.  Convert Studios project managed the complete process, from design, manufacture, packaging design, quality control and deplyment.
