String Shelving - from competition winner to cultural asset

We have a competition run by Swedish publisher Bonniers to thank for what is probably the most flexible shelving system in the world. Bonniers believed that people would buy more books if they could store them sensibly. So in 1949, the publisher called for entries for a shelving system that was affordable, easy to transport and simple to assemble and set up.

String - 1949-2024

The married couple Nils and Kajsa Strinning took up the challenge and won the competition - with a flexible, elegant and minimalist shelving system that could be mounted on any wall. String was born. Wall ladders, metal fittings and shelves followed. Folding tables, cupboard elements and many more modules, but the basic system is still the same.

A mid-century design classic

It has been with us for 75 years String Furniture and offers systematic storage space. As the demand for affordable yet stylish furniture increased, the unprecedented shelving system became the innovative centerpiece of Scandinavian design and took the interior world by storm. In 1997, the String shelf was even included in the collection of the Swedish National Museum as part of national design history. A timeless classic.
