The String Pira G2 Shelving System is a contemporary interpretation of a 1954 design by Ole Pira (1927-2018), reimagined in this contemporary version by Anna von Schewen & Börn Dahlström.
Being both floor to ceiling or wall mounted this is a shelving system which lends itself to any application - from creating a wall display for life's treasures to a room divider to define two spaces. Pira is the sum of many parts - a series of interlocked joints, poles, flats and triangles, each no longer than a metre yet extendable to reach most ceilings from all floors. Whilst modular Pira appears as one harmonious whole with a jointless centrepiece with no beginnings or ends. A masterpiece of modern design, complex and sophisticated whilst creating calm and wellbeing wherever it lives in your space
Buying Guide - key points to purchasing Pira Shelving components. Please see the assembly instructions
Firstly decide if your system is to be wall mounted or floor to ceiling mounted. The maximum height for a wall mounted system is 308cm which floor to ceiling is 316cm. Then select the components needed:
Side Poles. These should be the minimum number of lengths to make up the height required. There are 11 different lengths available in black or grey with one end threaded to allow you to attach the adjustable leg, ceiling mount. Use the mimimum amount of poles required to reach your desired height.
Dimensions : H: 16.7cm; 25cm; 33.4cm; 41.7cm; 50cm; 58.4cm; 66.7cm; 75cm; 83.3cm; 91.7cm or 100cm
Pole Joints - only one size available to attach two poles together. Allow one per joint.
Dimensions : W: 3cm; H: 16cm; D: 4.5cm
Top Lid - this provides an end cap to your total pole length. Use for wall mounted instalations only.
Dimensions : W: 3.5cm; H: 2cm; D: 5cm
Leg - 1 or 2 per pole length (2 if fixing to a ceiling) - these attach to the bottom of each full pole length and allow you to adjust the height. They include a rubber pad to provide resistance and protect the floor. The leg also holds the plate used to mount floor to ceiling mounted installations included in the assembly kit. If you are doing a ceiling installation you put one on the floor end of the pole length and one on the ceiling end and adjust to secure the fit.
Dimensions : W: 8cm; H: 12cm; D: 8cm
Wall Brackets - if you are mounting your shelves on the wall rather than floor to ceiling. This also distances the pole from the wall and can be attached anywhere along the pole length except where a shelf is placed.
