Born in Sweden in 1917, Strinning studied architecture in Stockholm from 1940-47 before designing the iconic String shelf system that his name is still synonymous with. Since its launch in 1949, the String design has received more than 15 prestigious international awards. As contemporary today as it was almost 60 years ago, String was originally developed as an affordable and flexible bookshelf system that could be added to as owners’ book collections increased. Today String enjoys a fresh lease of life from the new company’s headquarters in Malmö.
