String - ModernSince 1949

Since its launch in 1949, the String Furniture has received more than 15 prestigious international awards. String was originally developed as an affordable and flexible book shelf system that could be added to as owners' book collections increased. It has since become a Swedish design classic and the reason why String still attracts attention after 60 years. The latest product is Cell, designed by Peter Cohen, "...a pearl drape for books"
