String Furniture: Certain things become so strongly associated with an era that they become timeless -­‐ this is certainly true of Nisse Strinning’s String shelf, which was designed in 1949.

The reasons are several; the thin packaging is simple and cheap to transport, the shelf is easy to assemble, the plain of the shelf can be quickly moved, shelves of various depths can be combined and books held in place by the side panels, it is stable and can be built out in all directions.

Whether the wall surface is large or small String is functional. It’s the side panel which gives String its character. Elegant and lean-­‐limbed are the coloured threads a slender "ladder" which ascending the ingenious walls, variable, flexible.
