String folding table

By String


  • Description

    The structure of this Swedish classic is light weight, yet stable. String is simple to assemble and the shelves can be easily repositioned. Books are kept in place by the side panels, and shelves of different depths can be combined in the same unit. When more shelf space is needed, simply add an additional side panel and some shelves. Cupboards and writing tables can also be added. It is equally suited to a large or small wall.

    This functionality and the timeless design are the reasons why String still attracts attention after 60 years.

    Now String are introducing the String+.
    "Can something great really be improved upon? That's the question we put to swedish architects Anna von Schewen and Björn Dahlström. String® is taking a step into the future: introducing String+, a new series of system components that are totally new and yet pays homage to the original string® concept. First to be released is the ingenious collapsible table depicted here. It can be combined with any of the components of the String® system. During this year keep an eye out for more components designed by von Schewen and Dahlström for the String+ series."

    Nisse Strinning

    Nisse Strinning (1917-2006) is the father of the legendary String shelving and furniture system. Nisse Strinning was married to Kajsa Strinning, also a designer, who together with her husband developed the String system. The shelving was originally designed in 1949 for Bonniers Folkbibliotek (Peoples Library), Bonniers being the biggest book publisher in Scandinavia. Nisse Strinning studied at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm in the 1940s and developed a washing up drying rack called Elfa, which featured plastic coated metal rods. This became the starting point for the String system. In 1952 Nils and Kajsa Strinning founded String Design AB and Swedish Design AB. Together they designed a wide range of plastic objects in the 1960s and 1970s. String can be found in many Swedish homes and is a true icon of Swedish design.
