1949 - 2019: 70 years of the String system
The famous String shelving system was created in 1949 in context of a competition organised by a Swedish book publisher. For the new reading passion of the Swedes, a shelving system was sought, which should be inexpensive, uncomplicated and easy to mount. The architect and designer Nils "Nisse" Strinning and the designer Kajsa Strinning had long mused on just such a system, long musings which led them to first prize. Today, the classic of Scandinavian furniture design is a popular global success.
The String shelving system is as simple as it is ingenious: being a thought through, integrated system, the near infinite possible variations of the individual elements allow for endless configuration, while the filigree side walls mean that even larger shelf configurations seem light and unobtrusive. The petite shelf is extremely stable and through the ability to combine shelves of different depths and colours universal. The modularity of the system meaning that the system can be redesigned, expanded, reduced and re-configured as required. To extend the String system, various accessories such as Hooks are available.
The basis of every String configuration is the side walls. Choose floor or wall ladders in different sizes and colour variants and complement the matching shelves. Many other elements, such as the wall cabinet with sliding doors or accessories such as hooks or a clothes rail, complete your individual String unit, be that for small or large living rooms, offices or hallways. Simply use the String Configurator and then send us the selected configuration as a PDF by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
