Additional Information


In the late 1940s, Swedish publishing house Bonnier decided to encourage the public to display more books at home, so it sponsored an international bookshelf competition. Out of 194 entries received from around the globe, first prize was awarded to architect and designer Nils Strinning. His String Shelving (1949) was an immediate hit, and one of Strinning’s original orders was for offices in the new UN headquarters designed by Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer in New York. Easy to install, beautifully finished and available in a variety of sizes, it continues to be prized by architects and homeowners today. The shelves are simple to move around, and when additional space is needed, you can add more units. This is the authentic String System. Wall mounting not included with In-Home Delivery service. Made in Sweden.

  • Weight capacity per shelf: 55 lbs. for 24" shelves, 33 lbs. for 32" shelves.
  • Max baseboard height for flush mounting with wall: 5.25”.
