String Furniture, founded by architect and designer Nils Strinning, is a Swedish design company that specializes in home storage. Strinning designed the classic String System in 1949. Simple, lightweight and stable, the side panels are simple to mount and the shelves are easy to reconfigure. Shelves of different depths can be combined in the same unit as the frame functions as a bookend.
Since its launch, the String design has received a number of prestigious international awards. Its distinctive characteristics are hard to miss – functionality, minimalistic design, attention to details. As contemporary and appealing today as it was at its conception in the early 50’s – String is truly timeless.
Start playing with designs using the String Simulator, an online tool allowing our clients to build their own design by dragging components onto a blank canvas. The perfect tool to help you visualise what design suits your needs at home or in the office! Once you have finished, save as a PDF file and email your closest Great Dane retailer for a quote and availability!
When more shelf space is needed, you can simply add more units. Change a colour, add a shelf, vary a look, or combine all elements to get the perfect String look for your place. String is always the perfect place to start!
The String Pocket can also be combined in a host of ways. Build on what you already have by adding two pockets together to create three sections. Stack them on top or side by side for a long shelf.
