The string® system was designed in 1949. Over 60 years it has evolved from being a ground-breaking concept to becoming one of the most loved pieces of classic Scandinavian design. Each component of the system is so well thought through that there is an almost infinite variety of combinations. Thanks to the slim panels it’s possible to create a shelf large enough for any number of books and objects that still looks light. The components are available in a range of colours and materials, yet the measurements are fixed and have never been altered. that’s why a string® shelf can always be rebuilt, reinvented and transformed.
String® system was a success right from the start. but Nils Strinning never stopped developing his concept. Four years after launching the original string, he released String® Plex. the hand-cut panels were made of plexiglass (perspex), at the time a totally new material from Germany. over the years we haven’t changed anything, except for the fact that now the panels are laser cut. the shelves still appear to float freely in the air – a sort of maximised minimalism. string® Plex is available in two depths and six different colours.
