String® Shelving System

Nils Strinning for String - 1949

The String system was designed in 1949 and it has evolved from ground-breaking concept to beloved Scandinavian design classic. Each component of the system integrates perfectly into an almost infinite variety of combinations. The components are available in a range of colours and materials, yet the measurements are fixed and have never been altered. That’s why a String shelf can always be rebuilt, reinvented and transformed. String system is not limited to any one room or need. We stock the most popular options so contact us today and we can help build the perfect String shelving.
