Nick & Beau PaletteCase For iPad 2: One Case to Rule Them All?
April 11th, 2011
The perfect iPad case is almost like the One Ring from Lord of the Rings: it’s almost impossible to find and when you do, it’s filled with problems. That’s one of the reasons why design team Nick & Beau designed their somewhat fancy PaletteCase for the iPad 2 and iPad. It’s simple enough so that it’s not too large, but you can use it in a variety of ways.
The main advantage of this case is that it allows you to hold the iPad easily with one hand. The concept was inspired by a painter’s palette. There’s a hole in the back of the case which allows you to slip your hand in. The cases that they’ve made include felt and leather instead of plastic and rubber, making the case feel nice to the touch. The leather straps can be used to carry the iPad or bent to serve as a stand.
The cases will be made in Texas from either Merino wool felt and leather, chestnut leather, or black leather. The PaletteCase will cost from $40 to $60 (USD). To order yours, head on over to their kickstarter page to help fund the project.
