The Memphis-inspired design of this adjustable phone holder even has room to store a charging cable


The Memphis 2.0 design movement was about viewing designs through a geometric lens. Nothing was normal, everything was simple geometry that intersected or interacted with each other. The products were fun, the graphics were vibrant, and everything was eye-catching until minimalism took over. Hold The Phone, however, retains the sheer beauty of Memphis 2.0 with its blocky design language.

Created by the folks at Boem, Hold The Phone is both a phone holder and a centerpiece. With its simple yet bold design, Hold The Phone does exactly what it says, while hiding a trick up its sleeve. The phone holder is made up of 3 parts – the holder itself, a slab-like piece of plastic, with a small cylindrical lip at the bottom to hoist the phone up on, and a large cylindrical element at the back which supports the whole structure up at an angle. This large rear cylinder slides up and down, adjusting the angle at which your phone rests, giving you the ability to tilt your phone to virtually any angle you need. Plus, this large cylinder is actually hollow inside, so you can use it to store things like cables, USB drives, SD cards, and any other small items you might otherwise lose!

The minimalistic Memphis phone dock (looks like a percent sign, btw) lets you hold your phone at a wide range of angles, thanks to the sliding rear cylinder. The rear cylinder sits on a simple rail and notch system, allowing it to slide up and down smoothly. A friction fit ensures your cylinder stays at the angle it was set at, so the weight of your phone doesn’t throw it off balance.

If you want your own Hold Your Phone, even though it is not available traditionally, you can purchase the 3D file for 8.90 ($9.35) and print as many phone holders as you want! Want to go further ? How about editing the 3D file and also integrating a wireless charger into the stand? !
