String® Shelving

String® Shelving

Minimalistic timeless modular design

The String System explained: String has essentially only three fundamental parts: side panels, shelves or cabinets, and hooks to join all together. Watch this (1 min) video to see the component options first:


'Modern since 1949'. String® is the original component shelving system designed by the Swedish architect Nils Strinning in 1949. He was one of the leading mid-twentieth century designers who built the foundation of what we now call 'Scandinavian design'.

The structure is light weight, yet stable. It is simple to assemble and the shelves can be easily repositioned. Books are kept in place by the side panels and shelves of different depths can be combined in the same unit. When more shelf space is needed, simply add an additional side panel and some shelves. It is equally suited to a large or a small wall. This and the minimalistic timeless design is the reason why String still attracts attention after 70 years.
