Price Varies Due to Modular Nature of Product

Modular Shelving System; Customisable with many components


The String Pira was originally designed in 1954 by a traditional master cabinet-maker – Olle Pira, who skillfully hand-crafted cherry, matured oak and maple using old methods. With that, he secured a place at the well-known school of art, craft and design – Konstfack. It was the birthplace of innovative design that was ahead of its time. Thus, making him the first Swede to win a gold medal at the Triennale in Milan in 1952.


It is a shelf designed to enhance your space that resembles the beauty of nature. The shelving system is delicately elegant but robust at the same time which perfectly captures the classic 50s look.


The String Pira is a design marvel that is flexible – it can be built in any space in your home, such as your living room and bedroom.
