"Once you start to notice the small piles of clutter around your home, you realise how useful August Sandgren’s boxes are. I now have more than seven in my home and I already know what I need the next box for"
"I was not convinced about the business case for August Sandgren, but when I received one with my name engraved on it as a present, I installed it in my hall to empty my pocket’s every day after work. It really works! My keys, receipts, cards, letters, etc now have a home, and I always know where to find my things in the morning"
"When I recently lost my husband, I bought a box from August Sandgren debossed with his name on it. I bought it to have a place for all the physical memories we collected over a lifetime shared together. I now have a place I can open to remember him. Very few boxes offered the quality and aesthetics I required but August Sandgren did."
Welcome to our Instagram universe
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.
