The Penman’s Box


The Function

The lids locking device opens to reveal radial slip-matched walnut accompanied by distinctive blood orange leather pen slots. The upper tier of the Penman’s Box features two removable trays and the lower tier features three walnut pen storage drawers which are opened with sleek push catches. In total, the box is designed to hold 32 pens.

The Base

The base of the box features a hammered trompe l’oeil inspired detail which looks like a soft metal stand but is actually beautifully crafted and painted wood.

The Details

The plinth was specially designed to complement the Penman’s Box. It too is veneered in Macassar ebony and also features the same elegant hammered metal inspired detail that the pen box beholds. The top of the plinth is covered in the same soft orange leather as the pen box and contains an internal storage space and adjustable shelves.
