Nils Strinning

The Swedish architect Nils Strinning (1917–2006) was one of the leading mid-twentieth century designers who built the foundation of what we now call Scandinavian design. Nils Strinning is the designer of the successful String shelves, a light weight shelving system created in the 1940s and very popular still today. String 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, you can simply add an additional side panel and some shelves. There are different kinds of String shelves, but the principle is the same for all of them: functionality combined with aesthetics and attention to proportion and details. The result is a timeless combination – at the same time classical and contemporary. It’s the framing that gives String shelving system its discreet but distinctive character: a refined ladder climbing up the wall.  

This economical, unpretentious design rapidly became a favourite soon after its launch. Its functionality and the minimalistic timeless design are the reasons why String still attracts attention after 60 years. String is equally suited to a large or a small wall and is perfect for any room – living room, kitchen, bathroom, children’s room, etc. For his timeless design, the architect Nils Strinning has been awarded a number of prestigious awards, including the Gold Medal at the Milan Triennale.
