Celebrating our 5th anniversary
We’ve collaborated to create something truly special for the occasion.
01 November 2016 , the Netherlands
Over the last 5 years, we have been designing and crafting luxury leather goods from premium quality materials. And our mission has never changed: to provide the best solution for carrying daily essentials using the simplest possible design. Our guiding principle is that we design to our own taste – if we don’t love it and feel proud to use it, it doesn’t get made. It’s that simple.
To mark this occasion, we’ve collaborated with celebrated industrial designer Athanassios Babalis (co-founder of Shibui.ch), who has – among other achievements – designed the highly impressive Votrys case, for which he won The Dieline Awards in 2010 and then the 2015 CWWWR Awards with the Trove case. After starting his professional career in London, and moving to New York to continue working for companies such as Dakota Jackson Inc, Athanassios now runs a design studio inThessaloniki, Greece.
Mujjo’s limited edition Wooden Case is made by hand in Greece. We used reclaimed American Walnut veneer, taken from the furniture industry. Through a careful hand selection process, layers are stacked and placed in a handmade mould. This goes into a press, where the case comes to life when the layers of veneer are pressed together to form its iconic silhouette. From here, the case goes on to CNC, a computerized mill which cuts each case to precise measurements, revealing its simple and instantly recognizable final shape.
The case then goes through several stages of sanding – all performed by hand – to ensure a smooth finish. We apply a small amount of gunstock (tung) oil to the veneer for a final coating which gives its final, satin-gloss-like finish.
The case is enclosed with a stainless steel door panel which is secured with a thumbscrew. A simple, yet effective design that is largely responsible for the signature look of the case. Hand-crafted by an experienced metal worker, the door panel goes through several stages from raw metal to a highly polished glossy finish.
Inside, a luxury interior is revealed. Your Macbook touches nothing but the signature full grain vegetable tanned leather in black. It slides effortlessly into the innovative leather-lined slot, padded with the foam that is typically used to restore vintage Vitra furniture – keeping your precious device securely in place.
It all comes together in a simple shape, an iconic silhouette with an instantly recognizable look. A unique way to carry your Macbook. Perfect in formal and informal settings. The case is made to securely carry the all new 13” Macbook Pro, Along with its 3rd generation predecessor and the 12” Macbook.
Available exclusively at mujjo.com, limited to 50 cases only. Ready for immediate dispatch, shipping worldwide.
