String® often grows along with a family. Parents might buy the smallest String® shelf, String® Pocket, for their toddler’s first room. Then it is extended and reconfigured over the years, as the children grow up, until they finally move out – taking String® with them to their new home. String® is still made in Sweden, adhering to high quality standards and sustainability requirements. Nisse and Kajsa Strinning continued to invent new furniture until Nisse died in 2006. Many of these designs were a great success, although none of them were as appreciated as String® – or ”the damned shelf” as Nisse lovingly called it. As if its creators were almost a little jealous of their own offspring’s great success.
