1949 - 2019: 70 Years String System
In 1949, at the age of 32, Nisse Strinning designed the String shelving, together with his wife Kajsa, in context of a competition organised by the Swedish book publisher Bonniers, to create a bookcase which is affordable, easy to transport, and easy to assemble and build. The Strinnings won with their String System; in the same year, they founded their eponymous company, to produce their bookshelf "String", which subsequently became a global success. The original string shelf consists of filigree wire ladders, which serve as side walls, which can be mounted directly on the wall and can be combined in different colours with different shelves. In 1953, the furniture company released the first free-standing version of the popular bookshelf, if a version that Nisse Strinning initially did not like. The shelf system began its triumphal march through the world, not only moving into private homes and dwellings, but also into public facilities, including the UN headquarters in New York City. Awarded numerous international design awards, the manufacturer String has extended the flexible wall shelf solution, especially in recent years, with a whole system of accessories and office furniture. In 2005, the String Pocket was launched: In design and concept equal to the String, the smaller version of the wall shelf impresses in any situation thanks to its functionality and adaptability. Whether in the kitchen as a spice rack, in the bathroom as a storage for towels, tubes and creams or in kid's rooms as space for beloved toys - available in many different colour variants the string Pocket is a wonderful all-rounder.
