String Furniture - perfect balance

The perfect balance between functionality and form is the goal of String Furniture. Over the years, the manufacturer's shelving systems have become true design icons for precisely this reason and are regarded as an example of timeless modern Scandinavian design.


In 1949, the Swedish publishing house Bonniers announced a competition to develop an inexpensive, easy to ship and easy to assemble bookshelf. The couple Nils and Kajsa Strinning won the competition with their simple and minimalist shelving system that could be easily mounted on any wall. That was the birth of the String shelf. The design was further perfected in the following years to ensure that it remained not only aesthetic but also functional.
