Does one exist? I can't find one by googling it. Only for 13 and 15 inch.

I'm using an OWC TB3 dock, which connects with a single USB-C cable and provides power and connectivity. I can rest the laptop either horizontally on my Nextstand, if I still want to have access to my laptop's LCD, or vertically on my wooden arc stand, which doesn't have any connectivity whatsoever. Is simply a place to rest your laptop, and you connect the USB-C cable to it.

I mean, is not a docking station solution, like the ones you used to have with HP or Dell laptops, where the thing simply has all the connections ready so you could land the laptop on it and it will couple into it like the Dragon to the ISS.

Well, this is considerably less fancy.

I've used both Caldigit TB3 and the OWC, and the OWC has the edge on connectivity options. The Caldigit wastes too much connectivity on e-SATA, which is not really very popular anymore. I prefer the OWC much better.
