String Furniture

Born out of the necessity for book-focused storage in Swedish homes, String Furniture possesses a strong Scandinavian design sense with its array of functional and timeless shelving designs. 

In 1949, Bonnier’s public library announced a competition where contributors were asked to submit a design for a bookshelf that was affordable, easy to ship, and easy to assemble. This competition was created in order to address the lack of book-focused furniture available in Swedish homes. As a result, String Furniture was announced as the winner; solidifying itself as a timeless design of the 1950s in Sweden. 

After going dormant for some years, String Furniture reemerged in 2004 to take form as the brand that exists today. The designs were extended and reinvented to serve a range of functions, bringing a new perspective to their timeless Scandinavian design style.
