Design your own String – click here to start designing on our String System Configurator.


The String System came about from a competition in 1949 when husband and wife Nisse and Kajsa Strinning set out to design a shelving system that was affordable, easy to ship, easy to assemble and easy to install. 


The elegant yet minimalist shelving system can be customised in many ways and include components to help you integrate units into your storage solutions such as: Shelves, work desks, cabinets, pullout drawers, media shelves, magazine shelves, metal shelves, shoe shelves, folding tables, work desks, cabinets with slides, drawers, chest of drawers, filing cabinets, display cupboards, rods, coat hangers, organisers, knife holders and hanger hooks. 


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


All String products are easily customisable and minimalist in design. If you love the String System, do also check out the beautiful String Plex and the quick all-in-one String Pocket.
