Meural, Meet Swivel Mount: Meural’s First Accessory Doubles its Art Library
Canvas owners can now effortlessly switch between horizontal and vertical modes, right on the wall
October 18th, 2018—NEW YORK, NY - Meural, a NETGEAR brand and the creative engine behind development of the patented smart art frame, is excited to announce a substantial enhancement to the Meural platform: the Swivel Mount.
The Swivel Mount is a lightweight, sturdy and easy-to-use hanging mechanism that allows users to seamlessly switch their Meural Canvas orientation from horizontal to vertical, and back again. The smooth 90-degree swivel gives users the ability to display all the art they love, without any hassle.
Meural’s signature art library, housed at my.meural.com, contains 30,000 works of art—a value totaling over 3 billion dollars—which can be accessed without limit with the Meural Membership). Works in Meural’s revolving library are grouped by theme, period, mood, and genre, with artwork available in a mix of horizontal and vertical orientations. With the addition of the Swivel Mount, members of the Meural community are no longer confined to displaying artwork in one orientation—effectively doubling the amount of art that can be shown on the Canvas. Sensors within the Canvas automatically detect orientation, so the artwork within the frame adjusts to match, making for a fluid and intuitive process across both hardware and software.
“The most passionate members of the Meural community have been asking for a product like this for quite some time. As our community and art library grow, we continue to find that Meural Members are seeking ways to engage with our product more deeply.” says Meural Co-Founder Vladimir Vukicevic. “With the Swivel Mount, we’ve delivered a simple accessory that answers users’ needs, opens up a new world of potential for our art library, and significantly enriches the Meural Canvas experience.”
The Meural Swivel Mount ($49.95) will be on-sale on meural.com starting October 17th, and available in retail stores later this fall. To find a retailer near you, visit meural.com/locations.
