This Bookbox is crafted in the most exquisite surplus leather from Sorensen Leather.
The leather used for this Bookbox is always the highest quality of aniline leather, but the specific quality and colour changes depending on the left overs available.
This Bookbox is cognac, and most often we will also have black and grey in our assortment, and when we are lucky, other beautiful colours. The surplus leather box is always the same colour on the exterior and the interior, and apart from this large size, it also comes in medium size.
At home the large box is perfect for larger piles of clutter. Examples of use are in your home office for paper, pens or other office accessories, or on the coffee table in your living area, for remote controls and other hand-held devices around the home.
In the office the leather box is an ideal storage solution in meeting rooms, for notebooks, pens, remote controls, connectors, post-it notes and whiteboard markers. With The Bookbox you have these items right at the table, where you need them, but without having the mess. Many offices have chosen the large leather box instead of a shelf or drawer system, not only saving space but saving the cost of a bigger piece of furniture, keeping the office or meeting room tidy and everything you need within reach.
The leather Bookbox can be personalised with initials, name, monogram or logo.
The Bookbox is our bestselling box and was the first of August Sandgren’s aesthetic storage boxes. It is an iconic box with a design that dates back to August Sandgren himself, 100 years ago.
The Bookbox is made in various sizes and material and the colour combination on our standard assortment is composed by the renowned Danish designer, Margrethe Odgaard. Margrethe designed the colour universe with inspiration from mineral rocks and each box has one colour on the exterior and another colour in the bottom inside the box. We can make bespoke colours for orders above 50 units.
