String Workspace B


Brand : String

Designer : Nils Strinning


When we hear the word workspace, we see a variety of different set-ups. Some of us work out of an office, some from home and some have a mixed setup of the two. Regardless of where your workspace is situated, Strings’ Works™ and String® assortments got you covered with workspace solutions containing everything from electrical height adjustable tables to shelving solutions with a work desk. By adding smart accessories, such as organisers, you can create a workspace with only a few products. Their Works™ assortment came to life in order to support and complete what Strings’ shelving system already offers in terms of workspace solutions. They have inspiration for the smaller home office to the larger conference room or office pods with sit-stand tables. In their world a workspace is equally important as any other room, if not more important due to the number of hours most of us spend there. They have focused on creating inspiration for all kinds of workspaces where function and design are in equilibrium.

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.
