String shelving system by Nisse Strinning for String.

The String system was designed in 1949 and is rightly regarded as a Scandinavian design classic. Versatile, distinctive and minimal, this enduringly popular modular shelving system is notable for its ease of installation and its infinite adaptability.

The range of units and accessories available within the String system allows you to build simple or complex shelving work and storage solutions entirely tailored to your own needs. String shelving can be simply fitted and easily extended. Its multi-functional nature makes it adaptable to any room in the house.
