String shelving: Nisse Strinning

Damn these shelves make everything that get’s put on them look marvelous. Simply marvelous. These shelves were designed by Nisse Strinning, with help from his wife Kajsa. They originally designed the shelves to win a competition the Bonnier Library put on in 1949. They took flight. Became a staple in scandinavian homes and are still used today. I know right? How can this be. How can a whole country still be in love with something decades later?

I’d imagine the appeal is not only because theses lil’ storage dudes look pretty good doing what they spouse to be doing but also because the price is pretty comfortable too.

Also if you end up purchasing a string… you don’t need to tell them Mimomito sent you. They wont care. Nobody set me up to try and sell these dude’s to you so hard. I just really like ’em.
