To mark this occasion, they’ve collaborated with celebrated industrial designer Athanassios Babalis. As co-founder of Shibui.ch, he has – among other achievements – designed the highly impressive Votrys, for which he won The Dieline’s 2015 CWWWR Awards. 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 in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Mujjo’s limited edition Wooden Case is made by hand in Greece. They 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.
