The Dave Scale: Cheap, Not So Cheap, Exorbitant

Mar 18 2009 - 7:33am

What recession? Remember last week, when I pinpointed Target's pricier version [1] of my beloved Dave laptop stand from Ikea [2]?

Yeah. I can't exactly call Target's stand expensive, now that I've found the ridiculously expensive Nestable by Jasper Morrison [3] for furniture giant Vitra [4] — it retails for a whopping $845.

Wipe the sleep out of your eyes; that's eight hundred and forty-five bones.

The material list is polyurethane, powder-coated steel, and die-cast aluminum; there doesn't appear to be gold or diamonds in there, so why the high, high price? It's not bad-lookin', but wowee, that's the first simple laptop stand I've seen that comes close to laptop price.
