STRING® SYSTEM Wall Cabinet No. 1
Design by Nils Strinning from 1946.
The wall cabinet is made up of several separate parts. Four shelves, a magazine shelf and also a shoe shelf with a width of 78 centimeters are placed between the four uprights of 200 centimeters high. You will also receive two extra shelves that you can place in the cupboard at your own discretion.
In addition, two cabinets with drawers, one cabinet with sliding doors and two cabinets with beautiful glass sliding doors of 78 x 42 centimeters have been placed between the uprights. Two magazine holders measuring 17 x 37 x 5 centimeters are attached to the sides of the cabinet. The depth of the cabinet is only 30 centimeters, so it is also ideal for the somewhat narrower living room.
The wall cabinet comes in black brackets and the MDF cabinets come in black stained ash.
Dimensions: Depth 30 - Height 200 - Wide 240 cm.

About the designer:
Nils "Nisse" Strinning (December 8, 1917 - May 10, 2006) was a Swedish architect and designer.
Strinning was born in Kramfors and came from a Swedish family that originated in Ångermanland in the 16th century. The name was adopted at the beginning of the 20th century by the family farm "Strinningen" north of Härnösand.
Nisse Strinning was best known for the String bookshelf system that he and his wife, the designer Kajsa Strinning, designed in 1949 for a competition initiated by Bonnier, a leading Swedish magazine.
In the 1940s he studied architecture at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH). As a student, he designed a drainer consisting of plastic-coated metal wires. The drainer, which was called elfa (not to be confused with electronics company ELFA), became very popular and started when he and his wife created the famous String shelf.
Nisse and Kajsa Strinning are rightly seen as icons of Scandinavian modern design and the String Shelving System as a modern contemporary design classic.
