With Scandinavian design remaining to gain in popularity, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the modular closets from String furniture still feel just as fresh. The brand has several models and enhances the interior of countless homes around Europe. We had a chat with the guys over at String furniture in Sweden about its history, design, and future.
When and how was String furniture founded?
String furniture dates back to 1949 when a competition was announced by Sweden’s largest publishing house. The aim was to design a book cabinet which should be simple, affordable and easy. Nil Strinning had been playing around with a design like this and put his thoughts into action. After winning the first price, his ambition became reality! Over the past 69 years, String furniture has grown into an international company featuring a variety of modular systems.
How does the modular system work exactly?
You are able to choose from a variety of side panels on which you can hang shelves, cabinets or even a table. We have some limitations in size, but you are practically free to design your closet however your heart (and home) desires. The side panels are mounted on your wall, making the closet reliable and sturdy. You can always switch up the shelves or add a cabinet depending on your current interior.
