In 1949, at the age of 32, architect Nisse Strinning designed the String shelving, together with his wife and designer Kajsa Strinning 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. This is how multifunctional hooks, the String Pocket or even the cabinet element with swing door came into being. There are almost no limits to creativity and possible uses here, and so it serves as a practical storage option for hats and scarves, kitchen utensils or the accommodation of office materials.

As simple as it is ingenious: The variable String System, shown here with String cabinet with swing door

The String shelf system is as simple as it is ingenious. Every element of the string system is so designed so as to allow an almost infinite range of variations. The filigree side panels allow even large shelf configurations to still appear light and unobtrusive; the petite rack is nevertheless stable and offers, for example, books and CDs secure grip. Shelves of different depths and colours can be combined to suit both your individual needs and the the demands of the available space; and because the system in based on elements whose dimensions have remained unchanged since 1949 existing String systems can be redesigned and extended as and when required.
