The String shelving system by Nils Strinning has become so strongly associated with an era that it has become timeless. Designed in 1949, it may seem strange that something as simple and humble as this little dainty light shelf with thin side panels has become one of the twentieth century’s foremost design icons.
There are several reasons that make this Swedish product so successful; the thin packaging is simple and cheap to transport, the shelf is easy to assemble, the shelves can be quickly repositioned, and shelves of various depths can be combined. Customers love the fact that their string® system is a high quality solution made in Sweden yet surprisingly affordable. They also love that their string® is fully customisable and could grow and change with them over time – a clever, functional and beautiful lifelong investment.
