This Bookbox is crafted in black, aniline leather on the exterior with a beautiful dark blue on the internal base. This is our small leather Bookbox, but it comes in three other sizes; medium, large and magnum. Apart from this black and blue colour combination, the leather Bookbox also comes in a beautiful dusty grey tone with a soft turquoise base.
At home the small box is perfect for small piles of clutter. Examples of use are in your bathroom for your watch and jewels while showering, on your bedside table for a notebook, a pen, reading glasses, eye-mask, ear-plugs or in your living room area for coins, and other small items. We have also crafted a ring inlay for the small Bookbox, which makes it a perfect simple and personal Jewelbox.
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 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.
