String Furniture, founded by architect and designer Nils Strinning, is a Swedish design company that specializes in home storage. Strinning designed the classic String System in 1949, and the latest additions include the String Plex and String Pocket shelving systems and the String Works office collection.
String Furniture’s shelving systems are practical and the structure is lightweight, yet stable. The side panels are simple to mount and the shelves are easy to move around. Shelves of different depths can be combined in the same unit and the frame functions as a bookend. When more shelf space is needed, you can simply add more units. Since its launch, the String design has received a number of prestigious international awards. Their distinctive characteristics – functionality, minimalistic design, attention to details – made of String shelving systems a favourite soon after their launch and this minimalistic icon is as contemporary and appealing today as it was back then – a timeless design, at once classical and contemporary.
