The String System

String shelving with a combination of floor and wall panels

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 had long mused on just such a system, long musings which led him to first prize. Today, the classic of Scandinavian furniture design is a popular global success, and on the occasion of its 70th anniversary the company expanded its product portfolio, including the release of the String Pocket in new colour versions and the String shelving system in an outdoor version.

Configurator

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 service@smow.com.

The Design

The String shelving system is as simple as it is ingenious: a thought through, integrated system the near infinite possible variations of the individual elements allow for near 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. String shelves can be redesigned and reconfigured over and over again and, thanks to their high-quality materials, and even passed on from generation to generation. With his design, Nisse Strinning created an aesthetically pleasing and commercially successful shelving system whose assembly requires no special tools. Whether modern or vintage: thanks to its versatility, the String shelving system blends in perfectly with various living styles and provides a homely ambience in every room not least through the myriad colour combination and different texture possibilities. And should change be desired, the shelving can be expanded as desired and equipped with drawers, hooks or metal shelves. All components of the String system are manufactured in Sweden.
