String Pocket - Black
String Pocket – black
The refined String Pocket – black is an elegant three-tiered shelving unit and the starter kit to the awesomely versatile String Modular Storage system, which has been winning awards since 1949 – the year Nils Strinning designed it in response to a public competition for affordable, easy to transport, long-lasting book storage.
What you get – two black powder coated side panels for wall hanging and three black stained ash shelves, all in one box and supplied with steel shelf-hanging brackets.
What you can do with it – you can hang your String Pocket – black as a solo shelving unit or combine it with one or more further String Pockets to make larger shelving configurations. Alternatively, you can upgrade to the matching String Modular Shelving system.
How big is it? It’s 50 cm high, 60 cm wide and 15 cm deep.
Did it win a gold medal at the Milan Trienniel in 1954 and the 1999 Swedish Svenskform? Yup – and a lot more besides.
Why is it such a respected piece of design? The String range of shelving marries form and function, one of the Holy Grails of design, the basis of the earlier Bauhaus movement and one of the goals of the modern Scandinavian style. Plus it looks brilliant.
Timeless, unpretentious, practical – no wonder these great shelves are as popular today as they were in the heady, optimistic days in the wake of WWII. They are still craftsmen made in a Swedish factory and the shelf bearing brackets feature the String logo.
