STRING Shelf System

Introduced in 1949, the String shelf system is regarded as a design icon and still looks as modern today as it did almost 60 years ago. An uncomplicated, versatile and practical system that is simple to construct, to alter and to add to. In addition to the standard String shelf and panel components there is also a range of units and work stations available.

Cone Base Desk Clock



Made from lacquered metal, this sculptural clock is one of a series created by modernist designer George Nelson between 1948 and 1954. His work epitomises the exuberant, forward-looking designs that emerged in post-war America when, as Design Director for furniture manufacturer Herman Miller, he collaborated closely with, among others, Charles and Ray Eames, Harry Bertoia and Isamu Noguchi.
