The N-BB01 Bookbox: Oak and leather - Pure - Large
Other sizes


Like our other objects, The N-BB01 Bookbox is designed to accommodate everyday-life chaos. Our storage boxes provide a home to the smallest essential belongings and reflects on the fact that our storage almost always resides out of sight. However, the design of this box is unique, composed by Danish architecture and design studio Norm Architects and collaboratively produced with the Japanese Karimoku Case Study. To us, it is just beautiful. Made using carefully selected wood from Japanese furniture production, the N-BB01 collection is unique. It tells the tales of traditional craftsmanship, and the materials, with the beautiful wood and natural leather, lend it a tactility that is stimulating and distinctive to the human touch. Small perfect imperfections in the leather adds to this experience.

Dimensions: 26/20.5/6.5 cm (A5 in internal measures)
Material: Japanese oak wood and natural Scandinavian aniline leather
Colour: Natural oak frame with sand coloured leather on the exterior
Production location: Leather work handmade in Portugal, frame crafted in Japan
Logo placement: Discretely blind debossed inside the lid
Personalisation: Possible to deboss initials, name, monogram or logo on the top of the lid of the box

This unique book box collection was originally created and produced for the Archipelago House, Karmoku Case Study's third case. Drawing inspiration from local building traditions, the Archipelago House's wooden structure is influenced by traditional boat houses found along the shore. The interior of the box is kept in natural, muted materials, which reflect the nature outside. Composed of high-end materials, a Japanese oak wood frame paired with Scandinavian leather, the new storage boxes interpret several architectural elements and details. Made by leading Japanese wooden furniture manufacturer, Karimoku Furniture Inc., the collection of boxes pay homage to August Sandgren's origins of a traditional bookbinding craft merged with carpentry details and joints known from Japanese architecture.
