You already put your Apple computer on a pedestal. You might as well make that pedestal complimentary to Jony Ive’s design.

The tech accessories company Satechi on Thursday debuted a sleek aluminum monitor stand, perfect to give your iMac monitor or MacBook enough elevation to promote the good posture you otherwise ignore.

The monitor stand comes in space gray, gold and silver and is the third item in Satechi’s Metallic Series, which includes a USB-C hub, aluminum wireless headphones, and a headphones stand.

Accessories for Apple products, whether directly from Cupertino or a third-party company, is an industry worth billions of dollars. Companies are all vying for a piece of a rather lucrative pie, creating products like iPhone cases, laptop bags, charging solutions and the like. To give you a sense of the money generated, mobile accessories alone in 2015 was worth $81.5 billion, according to ABI Research.

Satechi emerged in 2005, at first creating accessories for home electronics and car audio systems. It has since expanded to products that compliment personal computing and work spaces, such as battery chargers, stands, and keyboards.

The Satechi monitor stand lifts the monitor or MacBook 1.7 inches off the work service. It is 15.8 inches wide, 8.3 inches deep and can hold monitors as heavy as 31 pounds.

The stand improves ventilation but also changes the viewing angle to reduce eye and neck strain. It is available for order on the website or on Amazon for $39.99.
