Store Availability

An ergonomic lap desk for working comfortably anywhere with your tech essentials stored and ready. The easy opening, thermally insulated storage cushion has cable management to connect laptops and portable devices.

Home Office Anywhere
With a simple integrated storage compartment and felt cushion, Lapod Lap Desk lets you be relaxed and organised anywhere you work.
Update your home office and work in style and comfort.. being productive never looked so good.

Carry Work Essentials
Lapod carries your laptop accessories and work essentials like notebooks, portable drives, chargers, cables, mouse, devices, etc.. whatever you need will be in right front of you.

Easy Access Storage
In a second you can easily grab stored items or tech essentials without interrupting work sitting on top of the lap desk. Just slide the desk surface sideways to find what you need.

Design For Simplicity
Design for simplicity means refining and integrating useful features, functions and form into a more efficient, practical and beneficial solution for the end user.
Put another way, doing more with less, such as..

Work Flow
Lapod's simplicity is demonstrated not only in its dual function storage cushion made in a single-part from one material, but also in the cable management slot doubling as the "handle" where the lap desk storage is opened.. being perfectly designed for fingers to grip.

Cable Management
The cable management slot lets you connect your laptop to stored portable drives, power, and devices, thus keeping the lap desk clean and tidy with cables routed directly into the storage pod.

Fits You and Your Things
Ergonomically designed with a large, gentle, organic form to suit any sitting position (knees together, apart, legs or ankles crossed, or ankle over knee..) gives superior ongoing comfort over traditional rectangular lap desks based on laptop sizes only.
The cushioned lap desk raises the work surface off your lap to reduce wrist-strain and neck-craning.

Work In Comfort
The natural insulating materials along with the storage space of the lap desk create a thermal buffer that keeps both your lap and laptop cool. No more overheating laptop on scalded knee.

Large Desk Area
The ergonomic shape allows the lap desk to sit comfortably in landscape or portrait orientation on your lap. The latter being ideal for writing on notepads, journalling or sketching (along with the cable slot doubling as a convenient pen holder).

Designed to comfortably fit 13, 14, 15 and 16-inch laptops, devices or tablets and has ample desk space to go analogue with notebook and pen.


Storage Pod
Premium quality acoustic felt with high proportion of recycled content (eg. PET bottles) is rigidly thermoformed into an extremely strong, impact-resistant lap desk storage 'cushion' that will protect your items under any load.

Desk Surface
Sustainably grown bamboo high-pressure laminated into a strong, thin, and lightweight lap desk surface with a matte finish that works with any laptop mouse.
(At eventual end-of-useful-life, the PET felt is 100% recyclable and bamboo, being a natural material, is biodegradable)

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Tony has made the very difficult decision to close his LAPOD business and has ceased production :( We wish him all the best on his new adventures! All stock while stocks last.  - Terri (Founder + Curator at top3 by design

Objct co design simple and essential products for home, work and play. They aim to create inspiring designs that help you simplify and organise your life. By pursuing unique and elegant solutions to everyday problems, they create beautiful, useful and enduring products for living.

Whilst working on a deadline, objct co's founder Tony Heap, had to bring work home with him on his laptop for several nights in a row. After tiring of being at his home desk at night after sitting at his work desk all day, he thought there must be a better way!

So, he quickly cobbled together a makeshift lap desk so he could work more comfortably on the sofa in his loungeroom. The only item he could find was a very large, flat, hard plastic lid with unfortunately sharp injection moulded ribs underneath. It needed to be placed on a cushion to rest on his lap, but he didn’t want the sharp plastic protruding bits to damage the cushion fabric.

More rummaging in the kitchen cupboards offered up a large flexible baking dish, which when placed under the plastic lid meant his rough DIY lap desk was complete - victory! Tony now felt less like he was still at work and instead more productive and relaxed working in comfort.

After a few nights at his DIY lap desk, Tony found when he finished work he simply packed away his laptop cables, charger, notes and pens in the baking dish under the plastic lid. And so, the idea for the LAPOD, a LAP desk + storage POD, was born! History made, as they say.

Then Tony struck upon a niche with a series of product ideas he’d had for relaxing the ever-growing tension between our home and work lives. He quit his day job to become a startup founder/ design entrepreneur. After innumerable prototyping, testing, building and spreadsheeting, the LAPOD Lap Desk was put into production.

For Tony, good design is where a great idea meets beautiful execution – simplifying and unifying form and function into practical minimalism. Or as his grandma would say, "an elegant
