Twelve South has introduced the HiRise, a height-adjustable stand designed exclusively for the iMac and Apple Cinema Displays. Crafted from extruded aluminum and stamped steel, it elevates an iMac or monitor, allowing the user to adjust the height of his screen to create a more comfortable, ergonomic workspace.
Along with raising the height of Macs, HiRise creates a stealthy desktop storage bay for connected gear or personal items, according to Andrew Green, creative director of Twelve South. It’s compatible with all current iMac and Apple Displays and is available at TwelveSouth.com for US $79.99.
The HiRise has an internal metal support shelf that lets you adjust the height of your iMac in one of six internal positions. The HiRise shelf can also align the screen height of an Apple Display, side-by-side with your iMac for a dual-display setup.
Another highlight of HiRise is the hidden storage it adds to your workspace. You can remove the magnetically-held front faceplate to reveal a nesting spot for a backup hard drive, cables, your wallet and keys … even a Mac mini. Both front and back metal faceplates are perforated to provide pass-through ventilation.
