String has everything needed to kit out a medium-sized bedroom with this single-bay clothing storage. The preconfigured unit features a clothing rod, metal shelves up above with high and low edges for storing accessories and slanted shelves below for shoes. In fine-textured steel with a powder-coat finish in the familiar coated-wire structure, the unit also accommodates String add-ons like organizers, coat hangers and extra hooks (also available at A+R.) And it's infinitely expandable as needs grow and change, an enduring feature of Nils and Kajsa Strinning's 1949 modular concept.

When a Swedish publisher held a bookshelf design competition in 1946, there was no way of knowing the result would become one of the most iconic concepts of the 20th Century. Bonnier wanted to jump-start sales of its books in the postwar economy but realized customers would need a place to store them at home. The winner, out of 194 entries in all, was Nils Strinnings (with an assist from his designer wife, Kajsa) and his system named String.
Based on a ladder-like, coated-wire framework, it was lightweight, versatile and redoubtably stable. Not to mention quick to assemble, easy to reposition and little trouble to transport. String was an immediate success far and wide—especially with a newly identifiable younger generation. Just a few years later, in 1950, the shelves were even ordered for the new UN headquarters in New York. String continues to produce the timeless original designs as well as updated versions for both residential and office spaces.
