OUR HERITAGE

August Sandgren (1893-1934)

The company was originally founded in 1920 by the legendary bookbinder and box maker, August Sandgren, who was to his craft what Kaare Klint, Arne Jacobsen and Hans J. Wegner were to Danish design furniture, a true icon. August Sandgren was the preeminent bookbinder and box-maker of his era.

OUR PARTNERSHIPS

Succeeding together

When humans interact and partnerships form, new thoughts and new objects emerge, adding the best from two or more worlds. When we succeed, it is because every single partner has contributed fully, meeting the high expectations, we set for ourselves and each other. In many ways, August Sandgren is not a single company, but a collection of likeminded partners, sharing the same values, attitudes, and goals.

A modern box with a unique history

Our world moves fast. We are always online and on the go. While many of our important possessions are now stored in the cloud, we still have physical belongings – keys, cards, pens, jewellery, watches – that wind up in piles across our homes and offices, creating clutter and chaos.

The vision of August Sandgren is to offer functional, beautiful, high-quality boxes for storage made of natural materials that last a lifetime – or more. Each box is handmade in Europe of the best materials and an eye towards sustainability. The box frames are made of wood and a leather composite, and they are covered in premium aniline leather or wool textiles.

Our vision is to create boxes to fit every storage need in your home or office.

August Sandgren was originally established in 1920 by the legendary bookbinder and box-maker, August Sandgren – one of the founders of the Danish Design movement. His work, renowned for its quality and aesthetics, can be found in Designmuseum Denmark and is among the treasures of The Royal Danish Library. Today, the company is run by Pia Kirkeskov Andersen and her strong team of colleagues and partners.

It is our hope that each August Sandgren box purchased brings as much meaning to its owner as we have put into the making of it.
