Want one? We made 10 special NOTCOT Maple stands (no David Kind logo, just a little NOTCOT one instead) If you’re interested, contact me for details! Anything we make from these maple stands will go towards making the larger swing/shelf!

So excited to share our NOTCOT for David Kind Glasses Stands with you! Beautiful eyewear deserves a beautiful place to be displayed when not in use. Milled from Maple, Walnut, and Zebra woods with a felt base and 3d printed inserts that can be rotated (or removed) to accommodate just about any set of glasses (but they do look especially good with David Kind eyewear!) - which will be cantilevered over the woody mountains and valleys perfectly! Added bonus… you can also use it to hold your phone, or any other little items on your desk, bedside table, counter, etc. And even when empty (i might be biased!) they are mesmerizing to stare at - the topographic lines that emerged as we milled the wood grain are just beautiful, and each one is so different from the others!

These stands were designed, prototyped, (some) milled, lasered, 3D printed and finished all in-house here at NOTlabs, Los Angeles. See the full making-of here! In fact, we didn’t even set out to design glasses stands, but while prototyping our swing/shelf project, Dave Barton of David Kind happened to visit, and while showing us glasses, our prototype happened to be on the table, and the perfect fit for them! And just like that, the idea for wooden glasses stands was born, and we had to make them a reality.

Ready to see them all? See the product shots and details on the next page. And if you want to see them in person - we hear that sometime this week they will be available at Deus Ex Machina in Venice! But for now… to the pictures!

We made two logo variants - one with the logo on the largest triangle facet, and one with the logo on the vertical face. dkall1.jpg

Dropping them off at David Kind made it all feel so real! First thing we did was lay them all out and fill them with frames! … and pop up the David Kind website on a phone to test it out with both eyewear and phone of course. dkreal1.jpg

They look fun solo, but also tile nicely for endless woody mountains! dkreal2.jpg

As you can imagine - we’re now dreaming up even more ideas to make larger pieces with this style… dkreal3.jpg
