The Actor Notebook Case is designed through a joint effort by Christina Skouloudi Design Studio and Athanasios Babalis.

The product is from a series based around the Argonauts. Each project is named after one of the sailors, in this case Actor. The aesthetics of the product are very minimalist using a single piece of moulded wood to form the majority of the outer surface. This is a good usage of this very versatile material!

The inside is felt covered to protect the notebook, whilst the side that opens is made from a matt finished steel. For security it comes with either a thumb screw lock or a key lock making it a very secure case. An additional feature is that it doesn’t directly scream notebook case which is a security feature within itself. Designing against crime is a subject which we will address in a future design discussion.
