If there’s one thing we don’t like about smartphone stands, it is that they’re often so uninspired. The ‘Zooly’ smartphone stand by Younggun Cho is a wonderful exception to that and provides a fun way to prop devices up. Adorably expressive, they look ready to gobble up your smarthones (iPhone), especially ‘Angry Buddy’ (one of the stands). Each playful stand makes for a fun desktop accessory that props up your device but also functions as an amplifier for your phone’s speaker thanks to its internal acoustics.
Designed by Younggun Cho of O’LIVEFACTORY D’signStudio for ZAZAKK, a brand based in Gihung-gu, Korea, the ‘Zooly’ smartphone stands are made out of eco-friendly birch wood. Shaped into rectangular forms, they can hold iPhones in one of two ways, vertical or horizontal. There are four different ‘Zooly’ smartphone stands. Besides ‘Angry Buddy’ there’s ‘Smiling Sara’, ‘Lovely Jane’ and ‘Dizzy Danny’. Each of their expressions are conveyed through the eyes. For instance, the eyes of ‘Lovely Jane’ eyes are shaped like hearts while ‘Dizzy Danny’s’ eyes are nothing more than a pair of ‘x’. Via: www.yankodesign.com
