Create a cocktail station with the glass-fronted vitrine. Cantilever a single chest as a free-floating nightstand with 2 drawers to stow away reading and other bedtime essentials. Line up a trio of solid door cabinets side-by-side to create a sideboard for tableware. We could go on with the versatile uses of the String Cabinets and Chests—their applications only to be expanded by adding shelves here and hooks or containers there—but the point is hopefully made: String is one all-purpose system.
The sliding door cabinets include an adjustable shelf: a wood shelf in the cabinet with solid doors; a glass one behind the similarly transparent doors. Modules are available for use with either 20cm- or 30cm-deep wall panels (accordingly, inside depth is 16 cm and 26 cm, respectively). Round "hole" openers are rimmed in stainless steel.
Double-drawer chest fits the 30cm wall panels and has an inside depth 23 cm drawers, and openers also rimmed in stainless steel.
Since its launch as a simple bookcase 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.
As the longest-running resource for this Swedish heritage brand in North America, A+R offers the entire String collection.
When a Swedish publisher held a bookshelf design competition in 1949, there was no way of knowing it would result in one of the most iconic concepts of the 20th Century. Bonnier wanted to jump-start sales of its books in the postwar economy and recognized consumers would need a place to store them. Of 194 entries, Nisse Strinning, with an assist from his designer wife Kajsa, took the prize with a nimble system called String.
Based on a ladder-like, coated-wire framework, String is lightweight, versatile and redoubtably stable. Quick assembly, easy to reposition and little trouble to transport as it's mostly flatpacked also add to its enduring appeal. At its launch, String was an immediate success far and wide—especially with a newly identifiable younger generation. Within 4 years of String's launch, in 1950, the system even caught on in the hallowed halls of the new UN headquarters in New York where they were installed.
The Swedish-based company continues to produce the timeless original designs, as well as a thoughtfully expanding array of components and accessories and in an evolving array of finishes to meet modern needs. The best part? It's as relevant and elegant today as it was back when Nisse and Kajsa submitted their original contest entry.
