String furniture’s motto is “Modern since 1949,” which sums up this fun, timeless brand. It is the ultimate go-to design for classic, yet modern furniture that is functional, versatile, flexible and timeless.
There is no better example of this than the String Shelving system. Designed in 1949 by the Swedish architect, Nils Strinning, the String shelving system has won many coveted awards and established itself as one of the most loved Scandinavian designs available.
Its mid century design appeal means it looks as good today as it did back then, in any interior - whether it be traditional or modern. With white, black or grey powder coated frames or support panels, there are a number of added elements available to create your own unique look. With a choice of glass or wooden door sliding cabinets, a two drawer chest, a work desk or folding table and a range of magazine shelves and accessories, String Shelving is, we think, the definitive modular shelving system.
String furniture oozes Scandinavian charm and is still manufactured in Sweden to this day. It is modern, minimalist, light and has an industrial nod for a distinctive look. The refined, unpretentious look makes it timeless and the brand's creative evolution has ensured that String products have remained relevant for over 60 years.
String Pocket Shelving was developed as a starter pack, offering a "straight out of the box" shelving solution comprising of 2 side panels and 3 shelves. Available in a range of colours and finish options, the String Pocket offers an affordable design classic shelving solution that can be adapted to suit almost any interior.
String Shelving has won many coveted design awards, including:
- 1949: Winner of the Bonnier Bookshelf competition
- 1954: Gold Medallion (Milan Triennialto)
