Description

The String System embodies one of our favorite tenets at A+R: bringing attention to true design classics that have stood the test of time and are just as fresh and viable today. To wit, what you see on this page is only a start.

Introduced in 1949, the late Nisse Strinning's enduring String System is the manifestation of renowned Scandinavian sensibility, a modular system so intelligently configured that to call it customizable only hints at the possibilities. With its slim supports and aptly-scaled shelving, the overall profile is light, ordered and a complement to any interior. Easily assembled and a breeze to change out and adjust by virtue of the signature framing, which functions as supports to keep everything in place. And the range of companion units that the system can accommodate—including a work desk, cabinet options, magazine holders and folding tables—attest to the String System's much-heralded versatility. Nearly 7 decades on, Nils' masterstroke remains just as salutary now as it did then.

As the longest-running resource for this Swedish heritage brand in North America, A+R offers the entire String collection.

Brand

String

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.
