BLOCK by de Dolomieu
For hundreds of years, the quarries of the Apuan Alps in Italy have produced more marble than any other quarry in the entire world. Supplying artists and innovators alike with the highest quality marble this planet has to offer, these quarries have long been inaccessible to the likes of you and me.
Thankfully all that is about to change, as the marble which was once only privy to the Italian masters can now be used to separate your laptop from touching your desk. That’s right, your every Mac-related marble dream has finally come true as de Dolomieu has released BLOCK: a marble laptop stand that acts as the perfect centerpiece for the modern workspace. With each slab uniquely hand-selected for its intricate patterns and milled from a hefty 14-kilogram, 6-centimeter-thick slab of marble, de Dolomieu has produced a laptop stand like no other.
Delivered all the way from Carrera, Italy to the factory in Berlin, Germany, these slabs undergo a seven-hour transformation that involves heavy machinery, a great deal handwork, and a painstaking attention to detail worthy of Michelangelo himself. Designed specifically with Apple in mind, the BLOCK promises to be a near-seamless extension of a Macbook computer as it turns your laptop into a true work of art. Just think of the BLOCK as the pedestal holding up the David of your latest Netflix binge.
Not only does it look great, but the BLOCK is without a shadow of a doubt the most luxurious, albeit unnecessary, computer accessory to have ever been created. If you’re looking to add an air of sophistication to the mayhem of your workspace then the BLOCK is probably what you’re looking for.
Released in a limited quantity of 100 pieces, divided up between three different models for Apple’s range of notebook computers, prices for a BLOCK range from AED 13,150 - 14,792.
