Update: This post has been amended to indicate the M2 stand for iPhone is angled appropriately for video calling.
Elago is a design company based in California that makes accessories for mobile devices. Its P2 (US$49.99) and M2 ($29.99) stands are designed to accommodate the iPad, iPad mini, iPhone and iPod touch.
Made from aluminum, the P2 (a slightly larger design for iPad) and M2 (for iPhone) are extremely solid and sturdy, though quite light. You'd be hard pressed to damage one in any way. I was actually a little more concerned that the stands themselves might scratch or damage a surface like a wooden table top if one of them was knocked over or dropped (or even my iDevice). However, the bases have rubber feet to prevent scratches, slipping and sliding.
Taking more than just a design cue from the tear-drop-like base of iMacs and Apple displays, both the P2 and M2 will fit right in with the rest of your Apple gear. Like you do with an iMac or Thunderbolt display, with an iPhone or iPad in place, you get the impression that your iDevice is floating in the air, except for the giveaway wrap-around feet that hold the device in place at the bottom, and the stands' base footprint.
On the rear of both stands are two cutaways, a small circle and vertical rectangle for cable management. The vertical rectangle is big enough to feed the USB end of an iOS device charger cable through as well as, of course, the Lightning connector variety. I'm not entirely sure what the circular cutaway is for, but the lightning connector fits through that too.
The available black and silver colors (the silver akin to an iMac or MacBook), reinforce the Apple-esque inspiration. I don't think this is a bad thing. The P2 and M2 are simple and minimal, yet functional. They look great, and when in use, take a back seat to the devices resting on them.
