August Sandgren is the result of a dedication to creating high-quality storage solutions with timeless aesthetics, continuously supporting a sustainable life with a respectful mindset towards our surroundings – also in our home. In an effort to reduce waste and utilise materials already in existence, August Sandgren has based their production on a surplus strategy and has now gained access to materials from executive members of the European furniture and fashion industry.
Originally founded by accomplished bookbinder and box-maker August Sandgren who lived from 1893-1934, the company today builds on the discovery of Sandgren’s legacy through original patterns, materials, and tools that were left from the original company. The strong values and craftsmanship were adopted and the work was re-imagined to build an innovative company that accommodates today’s need for beautiful storage solutions.
Sandgren lived with curiosity, passion, and accomplishment; never too proud to learn from others. Renowned for quality, timelessness, and functionality, Sandgren was a supplier to the Danish court and is today recognized as one of the founders of Danish functionalism among other pioneers within their respective fields: Kaare Klint, Arne Jacobsen, and Hans J. Wegner. The original creations of exceptional craft and impeccable attention to detail are still sought after today, proving the fact that August Sandgren's products last more than a lifetime.

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.
The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.
This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.
Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.
How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.
This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.
How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.
At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
