String, the popular shelving system
There are many reasons why String and String Plex have remained popular over the decades. They are simple to mount, the lower shelf is easy to move, shelves with different depths can be combined, the frames support the books, are stable and can also be expanded in all directions. Whether the wall is big or small, String always fits.
The side panels give the shelves their unmistakable character.
They are elegant and slender, letting String climb up the walls as graceful “ladders”. The simple, modernist design made the shelves extremely popular shortly after their introduction in 1949.
String Plex is so simple and elegant that the lower shelf gives the impression of floating free in the air. A minimalist icon which had already been designed in 1953.
Timeless design - today and back then
String is just as modern and popular today as it was back then. It’s not really astonishing: This work from the architect Nisse Strinning combines the inventor’s demands for function with his aesthetic feeling for proportion and detail.
Resulting in a classic combination which remains modern and contemporary.
Only you know, how it fits you best!
