Alcove Group Develops the First Mobile Workstation

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Alcove Group is preparing to launch a Kickstarter Campaign for their first product, a first-of-its-kind laptop case that unfolds into a sleek private workstation with backlight and patent-pending noise-directing side panels providing privacy without a bulky look and awkward feel.

Alcove solves the visual and noise distractions so many professionals are faced with when working in open spaces.

Yared Akalou and Sergio Aleman founded Alcove in 2017, and their mission is simple: to bring remote and shared-space workers into the future with a workstation that puts them instantly "in the zone," whenever and wherever they do their work.

The idea for Alcove came to Akalou through years of dedicated field study and research on how people work today.  "Today's talent need a workspace as flexible as they are and Alcove affords more privacy whenever it is time to focus." Akalou and Aleman capitalized on their respective backgrounds in design to uniquely solve for these challenges to bring Alcove to life.

"Work today," says Akalou, "is shifting from full-time employment (tenured based) to short, project based stints. Naturally, that means you'll likely be working in different locations. That's where Alcove can move with you, where work and life takes you."

Alcove is much more than a workstation for your laptop. Alcove's patent-pending privacy panels and optional backlight, which is rechargeable, also support activities such as reading and writing in low lighting conditions.

The Alcove unfolds from a sleeve style into a computer workstation and is designed to fit 12 to 15 inch computers. The Alcove workstation returns to the sleeve for easy travel and fits neatly into computer bags, backpacks and any computer designed travel gear or luggage.
