It may seem strange that something as humble as the String Shelving System (String System ®) from Swedish manufacturer String Furniture has become a design classic, but some things reflect their times so perfectly that they become timeless [Read more]. 

String Shelving System

A String system consists of elements suspended between two lateral uprights. These elements are very varied: shelves, showcases, drawer units, cupboards, desks, etc. Most are available in 2 widths (58 and 78 cm) and 2 depths (20 and 30 cm). All modules are available in different finishes: white, oak, walnut, etc.

To compose your String shelving system, we recommend you start by choosing your color by exploring the entries below.

It may seem strange that something as humble as the String Shelving System (String System ®) from Swedish manufacturer String Furniture has become a design classic, but some things reflect their times so perfectly that they become timeless. 

It all began with a competition launched by the major Swedish publisher Bonnier in 1949: if post-war Swedes wanted to buy books, they needed a shelving system that was practical, inexpensive and easy to assemble. Nisse Strinning had a stroke of genius and won first prize: metal side ladders between which elements - shelves, sideboards, desks, etc. - could be freely hung. 

The result was christened the String System, and the String Furniture company was set up to produce it on a large scale. Since then, String shelving has enjoyed continued worldwide success, thanks to its blend of modularity, simplicity and aesthetic lightness.

In addition to the String System shelving system and the small-format String Pocket shelving system, String Furniture also manufactures the Pira G2 shelving system, as well as a complete office furnishing system.
