These Smartwatch Stands Show What's Possible with a Single Piece of Metal

Smartwatch docks are usually focused on design and function, but these watch docks are designed to show just what's possible with the most simplistic of materials. Designed by Marco Stavermann and Manugoo, the smartwatch docks are crafted from a single piece of sheet metal. This allows the production process to be much simpler than otherwise perceived by allowing one material to be transformed into a variety of different products.

The watch docks are all etched in different ways to accommodate different devices ranging from the Apple Watch, to Android Wear devices. Additionally, the smartwatch docks also come in different models that can accommodate tablets and smartphones as well to make the unit as functional as possible. This identifies how modern product design may evolve to use the same materials but in different ways for a faster rate of production.
