String Furniture

design Nils Strinning, 1949

It may seem strange that something as humble as the String System Shelves (String System ®) has established itself as a design classic, but some things reflect their era so perfectly 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 library system. Nisse Strinning had a stroke of genius and, of course, won the first prize. Since then, String shelves have enjoyed continued success thanks to their blend of modularity, simplicity and aesthetic lightness.

String System is based on a simple system: side ladders between which elements can be hung freely – shelves, sideboards, desks, etc.

You can opt for a pre-composed system or create a String system adapted to your needs by choosing the elements yourself. Our configurator will help you compose the perfect system.


1) side panels

The side panels come in the form of metal ladders. They are available in a wall-mounted version and in a floor-standing version. Several sizes and colors are available. They are sold in packs of 1 or 2.

2)  shelves, cabinet, chests, tables, etc.

The side panels allow you to hang all kinds of items, from the single shelf to the sideboard with drawers, table, desk, magazine rack, etc. You will find them below arranged by color. There are 2 widths (58 and 78 cm) and 2 depths (20 and 30 cm) available. 

3) accessories : hook, organizers, coat hangers, plate rack, glass rack, rod, etc.

The extensive range of String accessories allows you to adapt your String system to a kitchen, bathroom, office, walk-in closet, hallway, etc. You can use them with the side panels and the metal shelves.
