With the Salone del Mobile postponed to June and skipping Stockholm Designweek, I am really happy I had the opportunity to spent a few days at imm Cologne. Imm is an international fair and many of my favourite Scandinavian brands are always present in Cologne to show their new collections. The stand by Swedish brand String is always a must see for the beautiful styled shelving and products. Despite Lotta Agaton’s recognizable styling for String, she always surprises the public with her outstanding styling tricks making the stand of String shelving and furniture one of the best in their niche.
I think a lot about different storage solutions lately, finalising my kitchen I can finally add everything back in and rearrange some things! The actual countertop is not really big and even though I love to keep things out of sight, I do love to expose a few of my most treasured ceramics. No wonder I payed more attention to all the new features and colours String added to their collection that would fit my own kitchen. I especially loved the 30cm deep wall panel, offering lots of storage space but still airy.
New accessories offer smart solutions for customizing your String System I can easily see the magazine holder in the kitchen with my favourite cookbook!
Galvanized steel hooks are an addition to the outdoor assortment, that was introduced last year, and they can easily be attached to the perforated galvanized shelves for more storing space. Another new addition to the accessories assortment and especially for the kitchen is the knife holder, made from solid untreated oak it is easily attached to one of the panels of your String.
Originally designed by Nisse Strinning the Swedish designer duo Anna von Schewen and Björn Dahlström designed a new version in entirely metal. It comes in three colours and despite being Dutch, a bright neon orange is one of the new options! my favourite would be the subtile taupe and classic white.
