ElevationLab was started by Casey Hopkins in 2007 as an industrial design firm, helping other companies make better products. In 2012, wanting to make our own products, and frustrated with Apple's Docks, we designed our own - ElevationDock was the first dock to work one-handed and was beautifully milled from a solid piece of aluminum. After a one sentence post by John Gruber, it went viral and broke crowd-funding records, becoming the first Kickstarter project to break $1M. We manufactured them all here in Portland, Oregon (using over 40,000lbs of aluminum to make over 7 Eiffel towers tall of CNC machined docks) and shipped them to our 15k backers in 92 countries around the world. This changed ElevationLab overnight from a design firm to a manufacturer.
In 2015, with the launch of Apple Watch, we designed NightStand to make daily charging easier. After a call from Cupertino and some moving of mountains, it became the first Apple Watch accessory to go into all 476+ Apple stores globally (which was surreal for a company as small as ours). Apple even created NightStand mode for it.
We are now on the 3rd version of ElevationDock. We make ElevationStand, a seamlessly constructed riser for iMac. We invented The Anchor, an under-desk headphone mount. We created DraftTable, a professional stand for iPad Pro. Made MagicGrips, a little side project that makes Magic Mouse much more comfortable. And we recently designed BatteryPro, an Apple MFi certified battery for iPhone & Apple Watch.
And we continue to work on designing and making new hardware today - with fresh thinking, solving overlooked annoyances, and a ton of iteration to make it perfect.
And back it up with an unconditional warranty & support.
