Description

The Large Bookbox is the biggest of our boxes, and easily holds your large piles of clutter – in your home and office space. Use it for pens, remote controls, handheld devices, notebooks, post-its, chargers, and anything else that takes up space and disturbs the eye, but which you need within immediate reach, or keep your most cherished belongings safe and stored perfectly.

The Bookbox is our bestselling box and was the first of August Sandgren’s aesthetic boxes for storage. The box is named ‘The Bookbox’ as it takes its origin from the beautiful old bookboxes, in which people would place their most valuable books to take extra good care of them.

The colour collection in green, saffron and terracotta is a tribute to freedom and happiness and is inspired by the work we did with Josephine A Hoffmeyer and Elisa Ossino in 2021 for Salone del Mobile in Milan. For H+O's installation in Via Solferino, curated by Josepine, we developed a collection of colourful objects. The response from visitors was overwhelmingly positive, and we have now made the most popular colours part of our assortment. The colour collection light up any room, and is made from soft aniline oekotex-certified leather.  

Dimensions: 36/26/8.5 cm (A4 in internal measures)
Material: Oekotex-certified European leather.
Colour: Cactus both on the exterior and interior. 
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.
