string®

Sorry, there are no products in this collection.

Certain things become so strongly associated with an era that they become timeless. This is certainly true of Nils Strinning’s shelf system, string®, which was designed in 1949. It may seem strange that something as simple and humble as this little dainty light shelf with its thin side panels has become one of the twentieth century’s foremost design icons. Nothing is too modest that it can’t be made better. This is how you could summarise Nils Strinning’s view on life. Through him the inventors demand for function is combined with the aesthetician’s feeling for proportion and detail.

We’re proud to carry string® and present it to our customers in the Netherlands and via our shop online. To see string® in person, please visit our store in Amsterdam.


Nice to see you here,
but we'd love to meet
in person too

Misc Store supports
climate change solutions &
plants a tree for every order

Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like. That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.

Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
A selection of these climate projects are shown here.
