It may seem strange that something as humble as the String shelves will be imposed as a design classic, but some things so perfectly reflect their times that they become timeless. Initially, a competition launched by the great Swedish publisher Bonnier in 1949: if the Swedes wanted to buy books, they needed a practical, inexpensive and easy to assemble bookshelf system. Nisse Strinning had a flash of genius and, of course, won the first prize.
 
String shelves are successful for over sixty years with their blend of modularity, simplicity and lightness aesthetics, enhanced by today's fresh colors.
