String is an elegant and minimalist modular system with classic wire panels that offer almost unlimited combinations, and is easy to assemble and install. It includes components that allow you to integrate shelves, work desks, cabinets, display cupboards, and drawers into your storage solutions. True to its customisable nature, the String System comes in a wide range of colours and materials, allowing you to build your own personal design, based on standard widths of 60cm and 80cm, and depths of 20cm and 30cm.

The Royal System is one of the most recognised Danish furniture sucesses in history, and for good reason. Designed in 1948 by legendary Danish designer and manufacturer Poul Cadovius, this iconic shelving system – which consists of wall-mounted wooden rails, shelves with hangers in brass or stainless steel, and various modules such as cabinets, drawers and desks – can be customised in a host of different combinations to suit a myriad living situations. In fact, Cadovius claimed that the original system had a whopping 16 million combination possibilities.
