de Dolomieu BLOCK Statuario Marble MacBook Stands

The de Dolomieu BLOCK marble Apple MacBook laptop stands exist within the rarified air of perplexingly prohibitively priced luxury goods marketed for the exclusively wealthy. Every precious flake of Statuario Marble – the most rare type of marble, characterized by its distinct and dramatic veining – is quarried from Carrara, Italy, then machined and hand-worked for seven hours into an elegant pedestal for 12″, 13″, or 15″ MacBook models.

Starting at over $3,600.00 – give or take a few dollars depending on the fluctuation of the exchange rate and intended MacBook model size – these rarified pieces of metamorphic rock exhibit unique characteristic varying from slab to slab, requiring 4-6 weeks lead time per custom order.

Porosity, density, and veining manifest in distinct coloration and patterns related to mineral and deposits content.

Weighing in at between 13-18lbs each depending upon laptop size model, shipping a slab of marble from Germany requires a hefty VAT and shipping fee – around an additional $772 per order. But then again, if a $3,600 laptop stand is within your means, a few more hundred dollars seems almost an afterthought. Outrageous? Certainly. Exclusive? Even more so.
