Designed in 1949 by Nils Strinning, it is made of black powder-coated steel and walnut veneered shelves. It comes with stainless steel shelf hanging brackets bearing the String logo and is simple to hang on the wall and take down again.
The String Pocket – walnut black is 50 cm high, 60 cm wide and 15 cm deep. Strinning designed it for Bonnieres Public Libraries in response to their call for a solution to Sweden’s burgeoning post-WWII boom in books and it has all the optimistic charm of that period. String Shelving went on to take a coveted Gold Medal at the prestigious Milan Trienniel of 1954. Their iconic shelves are still made to the same exacting standards in the company’s traditional Swedish workshops.
