Looks very cool, but with the price of other stands, this is a little out of my price range

I am actually backing this project but thinking of dropping it because there are so many stands already in the market! I think a MOFT one would do as good as this one

Hopefully this is as functional as the wooden ones.

I'm confused by the fact that this campaign even exists. I feel like there are lots of sorts of these products on the market already,

It feels like the product is flimsy. The front flap hides the bottom of the pages of a book. Very pricey for what it is.

Ready to bring hands-free convenience to your life with style and say goodbye to a bulky single functional book stand? 

You won’t want to miss this amazingly innovative OUT-OF-THE- “BOX” Reading Rest: a universal reading stand that holds books and supports e-devices of different sizes in style, hands-free.

OUT-OF-THE- “BOX” is stylish and desirable, where functionality, aesthetics, and creativity find a unique balance in the dimension of culture and concept that surprises and inspires.


Do you regularly read, work on multiple devices or work remotely while traveling? 

OUT-OF-THE- “BOX” is a brilliantly compact and portable reading stand with an innovative origami design: Open to read, stretches to hold books of different sizes, switch modes for various electronic devices, and fold flat to travel. 

The reading rest cleverly incorporates the origami principle, offering quick switching between 3 angles and 3 modes. Whatever materials you want to read, you may simply choose your favourite mode and hit the relax button, enjoy!


OUT-OF-THE-"BOX" has developed a new and bold innovation: a multi-mode free fixing concept that makes reading simpler, easier, and smarter. 

"Relaxed" mode with Octavo book: For pages that don't need to be fixed or only need to be gently fixed, use flat or L mode for a quick response and simple, unobtrusive page-turning.

"Firm" mode with Quarto book: The retractable back panel is flexible and compatible with most book sizes. Adjust the back panel to fit the book, clip the pages to the back panel together. Two actions make the page-turning to be convenient.

Disassemble clips hold the book freely: What if you can't clip a particularly thick book? Simply remove the clip and hold the currently opened page or a few pages in place so that you can turn the pages with ease. Voila! It's that simple!

The specially designed metal clip can also be turned into a bookmark in seconds to mark your reading progress. Unleash your mind, and use it your way.

The folding structure allows for flat storage. 

OUT-OF-THE-"BOX" is compact, 1.5cm/0.6in thin, and it is only half the size of an A4 paper. It saves space on the desk, making it easy to be stored on shelves, in drawers or carried around in your bag.

It is crafted with eco-certified and vegan materials at high performance. 

Soft PU: The large surface area of PU leather is a change from the stereotype of reading rests, making it extra comfortable and soft to the touch.

PVC + Magnets: The laminated PVC is thin, light, and durable, ensuring that each mode is stable and firm. With powerful built-in magnets, every switch is easy and smooth. 

Durability over Time: All corners and folds are reinforced to allow the product to stand the test of time.


Read hands-free anywhere, focused and productive at study and work, even on the plane! And it looks stylish!

Hold your iPad, phone, reference books, and documents next to your computer for easy multi-device collaboration without looking down too often. Get rid of bad posture or neck pain and increase your productivity levels 3X over!

Printing OUT-OF-THE-"BOX" on the product acts like quotes, provoking conversations and inspiring thoughts.

The “BOX” plays 2D and 3D, with an optical illusion. Even when not in use, it is also an artistic, thought-provoking piece, a fun product you would be glad to have around.

It is a perfect gift for any occasion for someone special, a friend, a kid, a family member, a book lover, or anyone who likes to think out of the box!

Advocate “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” the reading rest is packaged in a waterproof zippered pouch. It can be used repeatedly and is a gift that also conveys the idea of saving and sustainability, full of positivity.


GREAT value for money

To ensure the quality of the product, we will spare no expense and effort in every aspect of the production. 

Besides the initial development costs of the molds and the customized materials, the production costs of the reading rest include environmentally friendly Premium Vegan Leather. Eco UV Leather Printing is three times more expensive than the usual digital leather printing to maintain the logo durability and reach an accurate, high-quality premium look. 

In addition, each reading rest will need to be carefully assembled by hand to achieve smooth operation and match the patterns. 

Unquestionably, OUT-OF-THE- “BOX” is an ingenious handcraft that combines technology and craftsmanship.

All we want to achieve is a premium, high-quality product that will company you for a long time, anywhere, hands-free. Spice up your life, enhance your productivity, and reduce your neck pain with delicate everyday necessities.


Hey! I am Jenny Lin. I am an architect and a designer, the inventor of OUT-OF-THE-"BOX". I am always interested in understanding the background story and the meaning behind every creation. I love to think and am eager to put some bold ideas into practice.

Reading rest allows me to read comfortably and work efficiently. However, it is rare to have a portable reading rest that works well with books, tablets, and phones. 

One day I bought a metal reading rest that I wasn't satisfied with, and at the same time, I received a foldable iPad leather case that felt great in my hand. Interestingly, some of the disadvantages of metal reading rest, such as cold feel, stiff operation, bulky, and not for electronic devices, all seemed to be solved throughout the design of the iPad case. 

I came up with OUT-OF-THE-"BOX". The name reflects the core concept of the product, referring to both the innovative design and the product's "box" form. 

I hope this project can encourage me and everyone to step out of our box in life, be willing to try, dare to think and make the possibility happen!

Please help us spread the word and pledge to us on Kickstarter. Together let's bring OUT-OF-THE-"BOX" live!
