The Keko Tablet Stand: A New Design with a New Approach to Ergonomics

Montréal, Canada

X2 PRODUCTS EDITION

Montréal, Canada, 2018-01-30 -

One billion tablets have been sold since 2010, and before you finish reading this page another 1,500 will have been sold around the world.


But the tablet’s key feature, portability, can also be problematic for users. Once placed on a flat surface, inescapable ergonomics issues appear.

The Keko tablet stand offers an elegant solution. It has four positions meticulously designed to provide optimal working angles: reading, writing, portrait and landscape. The stand’s elastomer surfaces provide full-time protection from scratches and give the combined tablet and stand impressive stability. And stability means comfort for the user.


Keko was designed and developed by Jean-François Jacques of Montreal-based industrial design firm Météore Design. Months of exhaustive research and testing of different approaches to the problem led to a remarkably simple product with a form that clearly follows its function. Its textures, finishes, colours, materials, sounds and tactile feedback are all designed to deliver a superb user experience.


Keko is flexible, portable and ultra-light—it weighs just 54 grams. It will be a tablet’s constant companion. It is made of ultra-tough polycarbonate resin with an elastomer overmoulding. Hidden magnets keep Keko closed, it opens like scissors and a special mechanism holds it open to prevent the user’s tapping from closing it.


The stand is designed to work with most Android tablets and is compatible with all Apple iPad models. Keko works with most protective cases, including Folio and Apple Smart Covers. It can even hold a smartphone.

Keko is perfect for following recipes in the kitchen, giving presentations in the office, reading the news over breakfast, letting kids watch their favourite movies, and binge-watching ones favourite shows anywhere, anytime. It is also possible to travel with Keko by train or plane: it’s designed to meet all security screening standards.


Keko can be left on the table, ready to hold a tablet, stylus or Apple Pencil. The stand is virtually indestructible, as proven by the stress test seen on kekostand.com. In the opinion of designer Jean-François Jacques, that kind of durability is the ultimate mark of environmental responsibility.


Keko is marketed by X2 Products Edition, a company founded to commercialize products developed by Météore Design. The brother-sister team of Jean-François Jacques and Christine Jacques started the company to market and distribute useful items internationally. 


Keko is simple, versatile, attractive and fun to use. Above all, it gives tablet users better ergonomics.


The Keko tablet stand is available now in three colours: black, translucent red and transparent.


Keko is protected by laws covering invention patents and industrial designs.
