Using time-honoured genuine craftsmanship, August Sandgren creates handmade boxes of the finest natural materials – for well-designed storage and display.
The original Book Box was designed a century ago by the pre-eminent designer and Danish craftsman, August Sandgren. More recently, the Danish brand has collaborated with designer, Margrethe Odgaard to develop a contemporary, mineral rock-inspired colour composition for the range.
Handmade in Portugal using the finest natural aniline leather, August Sandgren's 21st Century take on the Book Box is crafted in two colour variations: black, aniline leather on the exterior with a beautiful dark blue on the internal base; and dusty grey tone with a soft turquoise internal base.
This product is also available in A5 and A6 sizes.
The leather’s natural grain structure is preserved, and so over time, use and exposure to daylight will develop a beautiful and unique patina. This product is designed to last more than a lifetime – a piece, or collection, to be handed down to the next generation.
