When Nils Strinning designed String in 1949, he managed something that very few architects or designers ever accomplish, however hard they might try. He created an icon. String was an instant success, and became one of Sweden’s best-loved bookshelves. Over sixty years later, String is more popular than ever.

String is not just a shelf, but a piece of furniture that can be infinitely varied. Anyone can customise their own String. It can be big or small. It works as well in the kitchen or bathroom as it does in the library or lounge and because String has the rare distinction of being an affordable piece of designer furniture, it’s easy to be playful.

All components are manufactured in Sweden. The basics haven’t changed since 1949, so it’s never too late to add new elements and give your String a different look.
