The Bookbox is our bestselling box and was the first of August Sandgren’s aesthetic boxes for storage. Both the leather and the fabric version is useful at home and in the office for both smaller and larger piles of clutter. The Bookbox comes in three sizes, and a removable inlay to divide the box into smaller compartments, can be purchased to the large Bookbox. The Bookbox is made from natural surplus materials, meaning sometimes there is small colour variations between batches and smaller – almost invisible – natural marks. We call it perfectly imperfect.
The leather box is named ‘The Bookbox’ as it takes its origin from the beautiful old book-boxes, in which people would place their most valuable books to take extra good care of them.
Dimensions: 36/26/8.5 cm (A4 in internal measures)
Material: 100% aniline surplus leather. The exact type of leather may differ from time to time, as this box is made from surplus leather and the leather quality used therefore depends on the available screenings of leather. The leather is however always among the highest quality of aniline leather
Colour: Black both on the exterior and interior. The exact colour may change depending on the available surplus leather, however, if more than one box is ordered we will make sure it is the same leather quality and colour send
Production location: Handmade in Portugal
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 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 black, and most often we will also have cognac 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.
