String is a shelving system from Sweden. This practical system, designed by Nils Strinning, is lightweight, yet stable. The side panels are simple to mount and the shelves are easy to move around. You can combine shelves of different depths in the same unit and the frame functions as a book-end. When you need more shelf space, you can simply add more units. It is the framing that gives String its discreet but distinctive character: a refined ladder climbing up the wall.
All these characteristics, and the fact that it is timeless, contributed to the success of the design since the introduction in 1949. Click here to find a list of world-wide retailers.
