This Bookbox is crafted in the most exquisite residual leather from Sorensen Leather. The leather used for this Bookbox is always the highest quality of aniline leather, but the specific colour changes depending on the left overs available. Most of the time we will have nature, cognac and black in assortment, and when we are lucky, we also have grey. The residual 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. From the colour swatches below you can see the colours currently available.

At home the medium box is perfect for medium piles of clutter. Examples of use are in your hallway for emptying your pockets when you get home for your phone, cards, coins, keys, receipts, on your bedside table for a book, a notebook, a pen, reading glasses, eye-mask, ear-plugs or in your living room for the remote control.

In the office the medium box is an ideal small storage solution in small meeting rooms, for notebooks and pens and in the reception for confectionery or brochures and cards. The medium box is also used by many as a small personal space on the desk for pens, clips, notes, etc.

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.
