Dutch design firm launches world's first 'open' tablet display

Tablet stand combines theft prevention with slim design

Delft, 8 January 2014 - An increasing number of retailers and fairs use tablets as a point of sale, information kiosk or interactive installation. Secure installation of the equipment is essential in these situations. Delft designers went along with this trend and developed the IVY, a tamper-proof tablet display in a slim design. The IVY will be launched February 2014 during the trade fair 'Integrated Systems Europe' in the RAI exhibition center Amsterdam.


The Ivy distinguishes itself from other tablet stands by its open frame. While other manufacturers prevent theft by using enclosures with only an opening for the screen, the IVY is an open, V-shaped bracket. "Tablets are designed with a sense of style. Therefore we were looking for a design that considers the aesthetics of the tablet as much as possible," according to designer Menno Pleij.

The result is a display which is not much bigger than the tablet itself. Pleij; "The strength of the design is its simplicity. Hiding the power cable and integrating a lock was a challenge. Our solution is characterized by its symmetric design in which both the cable and the lock are integrated in the bracket in an inconspicuous manner.

The annual fair 'Integrated Systems Europe' takes places at the RAI exhibition center in Amsterdam. It is an international trade fair for professional AV and electronic systems integration. ISE takes place on 4, 5 and 6 February 2014, the IVY can be found in stand 10-S122.
