On home ground

Stylepark is unquestionably a demanding client. For our new extension, all those involved had to be at the top of their game.
This year’s news from String Furniture is a String Pocket in neon metal –a String Pocket that for sure will steal the show. The bright neon colour stands in contrast to the existing and more subtle colour palette. Thanks to the new design with perforated metal shelves it opens up for bringing String Pocket into new rooms.
The new design made entirely from metal makes the already versatile and adaptable shelf even smarter with addedstorage possibilities.
Since metal can be surface treated in several ways, String Pocket isnow more robust which hasenabled forusage in kitchen and bathroom. We wanted to elaborate further on the simplicity and rationality of the shelf by producingitout of one plate of metal, making the shelf stronger and more durable, says Anna von Schewen, architect and designer.
The challenge the design duo faced was to develop an already existing designwhere they wanted tokeep the essence of the original design with its characteristic features.
It is a very special project that is all about respecting an existing design. The new metal shelves are supposed to blend into the classic and simple design rather than contribute with a new type of design –String Pocket has such a strong identity and we didn’t want to spoil that, says Björn Dahlström.
