Because of its functionality and beautiful proportions, String is a natural part of the Swedish design classics. The shelving system can be extended in all directions, is easy to assemble and the shelves can be quickly repositioned. What's not to like?
The String System was designed already in 1949 by Nils Strinning for a competition announced by Sweden’s largest publishing house, Bonnier. The shelf was to be "affordable, simple to transport and easy to assemble". Nils Strinning won the competition and founded String that same year. The initially plastic coated metal wires was an invention Nils Strinning made for the Swedish storage producer Elfa, who used it for wore baskets and wardrobe systems. In 1950, String shelves are ordered for the offices in the newly built UN building in New York City and in 1954, String is awarded the gold medal at the Triennale in Milan and later the “Excellent Swedish Design” award by Svensk Form and the German Design Award for its String works office furniture collection.
