String Bathroom Cabinet White


The String Bathroom Cabinet in White is a functional, minimal and sophisticated composition of String Shelving. Including wall panels, shelf and a mirrored bathroom cabinet this composition is a versatile storage solution for the bathroom or utility space.

A highly flexible system of storage which lends itself to many different compositions, String Shelving was designed in 1949 by Swedish architect Nils Strinning. It has won several coveted awards due to its simple construction of a powder coated steel frame on which shelf elements hang. Refined yet unpretentious, String Shelving has enjoyed enduring popularity since its initial design.

Nils Strinning (1917-2006) is the father of the legendary String shelving and furniture system. Nils 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. Nils 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.


Certain things are so closely associated with a particular time that they become timeless. There is no better example of this than the string® shelving system designed by Nisse Strinning in 1949. It may seem strange that a thing so simple and unpretentious as this economical, light shelving with its minimal framing has become one of the twentieth century’s foremost design icons. But the reasons are many. It is simple and cheap to transport as a flat package. The shelves are easy to assemble. Each shelf can be quickly relocated. Shelves of different depths can be combined and the framing functions as book ends. It is robust and can be extended in any direction.
