The Notebook pays homage to August Sandgren’s heritage of bookbinding. It can hold all your ideas, scribbles, and mind-clutter. Meant to last forever, this leather Notebook is created with changeable paper inside. It comes with the first paper notebook inside. The terracotta notebook is part of our desk set.
Our first venture away from boxes, the Notebooks were first made from left-over leathers that we had in stock, and we created it to use our left-overs and because we needed a beautiful storage object for our best ideas. Today, we continue making The Notebook in surplus leather from our own and other’s production as well as in a beautiful oekotex-certified leather colour collection.
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.
