The String System

The Design

In 1949 a Swedish book publisher launched a competition: for a new generation of Swedish bookworms a new Swedish book shelf was sought! It should be inexpensive, easy to send and easy to assemble. The architect and designer Nils "Nisse" Strinning had for a long time been considering how to realise just such a shelf. The competition was the excuse to start working in a more concentrated fashion. His subsequent design won the first place and is today considered a genuine classic of Scandinavian furniture designs.

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.

One system - Endless possibilities

Configurator

The basis of any String configuration is the side panels. Choose wall and/or floor ladders in your preferred sizes and colours and add shelves or other elements such as the cabinet with sliding doors, to create your own individual piece of furniture for the required space. As a universal shelving system string is suitable for walls large or small and for any given space, be that, living room, nursery or study. Having used the String configurator to design your unit please send your configuration, as a PDF, by email to service@smow.com
