String® System Underlays

Kajsa & Nisse Strinning 1949

The underlay in cork is part of our range of accessories and fits together with metal shelves from String® System.

The underlays are a great kitchen help since you can place hot pots and pans without leaving any marks on your shelf. Combine the underlays with our dividers to make it easier to organize cutlery and other kitchen utensils. The underlay has dimensions: w190 x d300 x h20 mm. You will fit three underlays on a 580 mm wide metal shelf and four on a 780 mm wide metal shelf. Each package contains two underlays in cork.


Simply drag and drop desired parts from the menu to your left and create your own unique combination. Play with colours, materials and when perfected after your taste and needs – e-mail it to your nearest showroom for a quote and complete list of all the parts attached to your drawing.

Kajsa & Nisse Strinning

Nils “Nisse” Strinning (1917 – 2006) was a Swedish architect and designer whose clean and practical designs have come to form the basis of what is now known as “Scandinavian design”. Nisse Strinning was best known for the String shelving system that he and his wife, the designer Kajsa Strinning, designed in response to a 1949 contest held by Bonnier public library.



The String design has received more than 15 prestigious international awards including a gold medal at the Milan Triennale (1954), The Classic Prize and Excellent Swedish Design (1999), German Design Award (2016), “Furniture Supplier of the Year” and Winner Long Life Design Award (2020) to name a few. String® was also honoured with a stamp by the Swedish Postal Service (2017).
