String Shelving System with Metal Shelves
'Modern since 1949'. String is the original component shelving system designed by the Swedish architect Nils Strinning in 1949. He was one of the leading mid-twentieth century designers who built the foundation of what we now call 'Scandinavian design'.
The structure is light weight, yet stable. It is simple to assemble and the shelves can be easily repositioned. Books are kept in place by the side panels and shelves of different depths can be combined in the same unit. When more shelf space is needed, simply add an additional side panel and some shelves. This and the minimalistic timeless design is the reason why String still attracts attention after 60 years.
The metal shelves are available in three colours (white, grey or black), two different widths (58 or 78cm) and edge heights (2 or 7cm).
There is a range of accessories available to complement the metal shelves: rods in three sizes (23.6, 53.2 or 71.7cm), hooks and magazine holder; all available in three colours (white, grey and black).
