Oregonian-based design studio and accessory manufacturer Grovemade has long been doing a fine job serving the organized set, placing attention to aesthetics, ergonomics, and space-efficiency with their catalog of handmade lifestyle goods. Their latest addition is the new Wood Headphone Stand, a desk accessory intended to keep your favorite set of cans neatly stowed away between listening sessions.
Grovemade’s impetus for designing their very own headphone stand was simple: they were unsatisfied with the multitude of existing stands out there, many bearing similar designs, and some seemingly modeled after banana stands. Their goal was to thoughtfully create a stand shaped to cradle headphones rather than tropical fruit – an admirable goal considered a pair of quality headphones could buy you plenty of bananas.
Their effort is a solid hardwood stand topped with machined grooves designed to keep headphones in place, with a natural vegetable-tanned leather exterior finish and stainless steel stand base that elevates the accessory above other bare bone designs.
