STRING FURNITURE

String Furniture is a Swedish design company, most famous for its brilliant "String Shelving System », which was born in the late 1940s and is being revived for its timeless simplicity and aesthetic.

But String Furniture is also the manufacturer of Hi-Low desks, the beautiful Pira shelving system, created in the 1950s and recently updated, and various exciting products such as the Museum collection.

STRING SHELVING SYSTEM
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.

Since then, String shelves have enjoyed continued success thanks to their blend of modularity, simplicity and aesthetic lightness.

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.

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.

A String system consists of modules suspended between side panels.

a – choose your elements

A String System is composed by elements hanged between 2 side panels. These elements are very diverse: shelves, showcases, drawer units, cupboards, desks, etc. Most of them 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.

b – choose your side panels

The side panels are in the form of metal ladders or plexyglass. They are available in wall-mounted and floor-standing versions. Several sizes and colors are available.

c – add accessories

The String System accessory line allows you to adapt your String system to a kitchen, bathroom, office, dressing room, entryway, etc. environment. They can be attached to either the side rails or the metal shelves.
