New from String: Relief

New for 2024 from String Furniture is 'Relief' - a modular system designed by the award-winning TAF Studio. The system itself consists of chest of drawers and hook rails in different dimensions that can be connected and mixed in size and colour.

Since all parts of the chest of drawers - including the back - have been designed with the same meticulous care, Relief works just as well as a stand-alone piece of furniture as it does in larger, connected groups or as elegant room dividers. Made entirely from wood and veneered MDF, the new Relief collection can be combined according to the needs of any room - from a single chest of drawers along a narrow side wall to a completely free-standing storage system with drawers of different heights and colours.

Unlike most chest of drawers, the back is designed to be exposed in order to be placed in the centre of a room, to act as a sideboard or to be used as an elegant room divider with integrated storage. "The range has understated elegance and is subtle in its design. It is easy to understand how the furniture is used and it should be easy to integrate and combine in different environments and contexts. It was also important that the products in the series radiate honest and genuine materials," says Mattias Ståhlbom, designer and co-founder of TAF Studio. 

Despite its outwardly "simple" design, Relief combines high manufacturing quality, intricate detailing and functionality in a way that sets it apart from similar systems. "It is an extremely well thought-out system that fits in all rooms, and with its straightforward design enhances the expression in all environments, regardless of how it is combined and placed," says Bo Hellberg, Chief Marketing Officer at String Furniture. A design feat is how the inside surprises with a much larger storage space than the neat exterior suggests. In addition, TAF Studio has selected a synchronised palette of five colours, grey, white, beige and ash as well as an eye popping orange.
