a laptop table for sofa couch to use laptos and tablet

Why you need a laptop table.

Tables are designed for paper and pencils or desktop PC, but permanent desk spaces are the thing of the past: many of us working in a nomadic style thanks to laptop and other mobile devices.
Many years of ergonomics research led to workstation designs and working practices intended to reduce the effects of poor posture in the workplace.
With the move to laptops, tablets, and mobile working, most of these ideas seem to have been forgotten.

A laptop table as an evolution for desktop and working places
The laptop problem has been recognised for many years, the standard advice is just follow the practices adopted for desktops and workstations. For example, the top of the screen should be roughly level with your eyes.
Also Tablet PC may be even more dangerous, many people are already suffering from “iPad neck-pain”.
Houses are also transforming, with open spaces instead of computer rooms. People are working on sofa, armchair, deck-chair or also on the bed.
Lounge-wood since 2008 developed an innovative solution expressly designed to create e new laptop table, fully adjustable, easy to move, ergonomic, comfortable. Lounge-book is the most imitated laptop table, because Lounge-tek has founded the key features to meet ergonomie with comfort.
Height regulation, tilt regulation to find correct position of keyboard, freedom to move, easy to transport, easy to slide under most of furniture.

No Laptop Overheating

No Laptop Overheating

More power, more microchips , more heathing.

Laptops have become powerful and compact thanks to innovative microchips ever more densely packed with transistors. These developments causes a risk of overheating. It can cause hardware failure and permanent damage.
Summer is coming, houses temperature is growing, it’s very important to prevent overheating laptop to improve the performance and extend the lifespan of your computer.

How Do You Know Your Laptop Is Overheating?

An alarm that your computer is overheating is when your fan is always running at maximum speed: a tool like HW Monitor might also reveal which part of your laptop is getting too hot. Mainly, you’ll find that the CPU or GPU are causing overheating.

What Causes Overheating of laptops?

Insufficient cooling is the main cause of Overheating, potential reasons include dust blocking intake grills or exhaust ports, a clogged up fan, or a degenerated thermal grease between the heat sink and the CPU or GPU.
Perhaps the most common cause of laptop overheating is if you use your laptop on soft surfaces such as pillows, blankets, couches and dresses over lap that may inadvertently blocking fan vents and obstructing your laptop’s air flow.
The intake grills are small openings that allow air to be sucked into the laptop by the revolving fans. They can sit on the sides or at the bottom of your notebook. Always use your laptop on a hard, flat surface, a good idea is elevate it slightly to allow for better air circulation.

Take a special laptop stand!

Lounge-book is the smart laptop support that prevent Overheating and at the same time offer a correct posture when using laptop on armchari, couch, sofa, recliner and even on the bed.

Thankhs to the special holes of the laptop tray and coolfit special feets made by technogel, your laptop will work in the always with the better air flow conditions. (or work with your laptop from garden or terrace)

Laptop stand-desk-table? Lounge-book is the All in one ergonomic solution

laptop cooling comfort ergonomic support

Mobile devices as laptop, notebook or tablet PC, works at its best on mobility. These technologies are now introduced into the workplace and elsewhere, expecially at home, where an increasing number of users as home-workers, freelance, business people, spend most of time working with computers with health implications associated with overuse.

Ergonomic issues

Due to their mobility notebook computers are used in a variety of work environments resulting in several user postural configurations. Users often sit in chairs and work with notebook computers set on non-adjustable work-surfaces without the use of external keyboards, pointing devices, or monitors.

Don’t hold your laptop on your lap.

Working with notebook computers on the lap is associated with even more head and neck flexion. This can be attributed to the lower screen height of a notebook computer, which has been reported several times as a significant factor for head and neck discomfort. In addition to placing the notebook in the lap, notebook users take on many other non-desk postures. These include sitting cross-legged, laying prone (face down), and seated with feet raised and legs either straight or knees flexed approximately 90 degrees.

 

Accessories can improve non-neutral postures associated with the devices, to setting up a notebook to emulate a desktop computer, with the use of accessories such as notebook riser, keyboards and pointing devices. The use of external keyboards and pointing devices is associated with lower levels of discomfort and better levels of productivity Performance is often better with an external mouse compared to an internal touch pad.

Lounge-book improves head and neck postures and user experiences

Lounge-book is the fully adjustable laptop support that allow to find a good posture using laptop at home.
Height regulation, tilting and rotating laptop base, Lounge-book easly slide under most of furniture as armchair, sofa, chiase longue, lounge-chair, and even bed.
Seated postures with sufficient back support are often more comfortable than the prone, with relaxed shoulders and more neutral postures.
Working with notebook computers on top of a desk has been associated with greater head and neck flexion; however, it is often associated with less wrist extension.
Compared to working with a desktop or a notebook in a desktop configuration (raised monitor and external keyboard and mouse) head flexion is about 10 degrees more when using a notebook computer.
Lounge-book also allow to move legs: sitting in the same position for hours, like in a chair where the body is bent at the hips and knees, can block blood from getting back to the heart, and may even cause your legs to become swollen.

Watch TV on Laptop at home, office, wherever you want

Watch TV at home, on your laptop

Prolonged use of a laptop, however, has its ergonomic limitations. On its own, the laptop is unsuited for working or  watch media (at least 3 hours) for more than one hours, working longer on a laptop results in an uncomfortable position with pain and stress. Prolonged laptop use leads to more fatigue and discomfort in the neck and shoulder region. Screen has to be adjusted to eye level. This can be accomplished with an integrated laptop support as Lounge-book.
You will be also, free to move, during advertising spots, to take a drink or your favorite snack!

Hundred years. Thank you Achille Castiglioni

works and philosofy of achille castiglioni the master of italian design that inspire every day our work

2018, Achille Castiglioni would be one hundred years old.
A special memory for his work that inspired us so much in the creation of our products. His thoughts guide us in our daily work: a philosophy that we feel contemporary more than ever, which we summarize with one of his most famous aphorism: “Good design projects never originate from the ambition to leave one’s own mark, but from one’s willingness to build a relationship with the unknown end-user.”Achille Castiglioni

Ci siamo ispirati alla lampada toio di achille castiglioni per realizzare il nostro supporto per notebook Lounge-book

Welcome back Brionvega! One of the brands that made the history of TV and Radio in the sixties. Brionvega returns with masterpieces of design including objects such as the “stereo radio phonograph” of Castiglioni or the radio “cube”. It was a design that had in the DNA the tradition of craftsmanship, traditional materials such as metal and wood but also with the innovation of plastic materials. But the main point of the thought was to create robust practical objects with intelligent and versatile solutions. It is the same philosophy and materials that we find in our ergonomic supports for laptops, objects that have shapes inspired by tradition but offer modern solutions for the new digital lifestyles.

Smart & Stylish support for iPad Pro and tablet PC

the perfect support for ipad pro and other big tablet PC

Smart devices as iPad Pro, also at home

Tablet PC are a new way to use computers, with intuitive gestures achieved for mobile computing.
However, responsive pencil,  Face ID and all the smart features included in amazing device like iPad Pro, tempt users to replace dektop and laptops with tablet PC, also for home-Computing.

Love your iPad as you can see on the video above?

Take care how you use it!  As convenient as iPads and other tablet computers are, they can cause physical problems because people often peer down at them in their laps. Viewing a computer screen is less stressful on the body when users are seated looking straight at the screen, not from above or below.
People use tablet PC in four different positions: in the lap with the tablet held with their hand; in the lap with the tablet resting against its case at the low angle position; on a table against the case at the low angle position and on a table with the case at its high angle position. Only when used on a table at the high angle position, users’ posture approach neutrality a straight-on viewing position. From the other three positions, users look downward at their tablets, at a steeper angle than has generally been reported for laptop or desktop computer users. Over an extended period of time, this is likely to cause stress on neck muscles and other postural problems.

Lounge-wood the smart support to enjoy iPad Pro at home
