Tasume
  • Tasume
    Convertible cover for the Barnes & Noble Nook
  • Tasume’s inspiration was found in the elegance and simplicity of origami. This cover for the Barnes & Noble NOOK is able to support both portrait and landscape table-top viewing.
    The geometric pattern embossed on the polyurethane wings is integral to the case’s aesthetics as well as to its functionality. The user folds these wings back and into a pyramid, which naturally snaps into place with Tasume’s hidden magnets. The case can then be rested on any one of its four walls, allowing the NOOK to be viewed in the most ergonomic position possible.
    Taume’s elegant functionality was recently recognized by C|net, naming it the “best NOOK cover on the market”.
