This product is new but the desk has a very small dent from transit. 'Factory 2nd' items are not eligible for returns. Please ask if you would like to see a photo of the actual product prior to shipping.

The String Work Desk is a simple and compact desk that attaches easily onto the String Side Panels at your desired height. The desk has a raised section at the back to prevent pens or other items from falling out of reach. Each pack contains one desk, fitting instructions and shelf fixings. The Work Desk is constructed from MDF and either veneered with real wood or painted with a hard wearing lacquer.

'System' by String is a modular and adaptable shelving system that simultaneously serves as a shelving, work and storage solution. The system encourages creativity in spaces of all sizes, by providing an unlimited number of options that can be quickly and easily changed however you wish. The system can either stand out or blend into the wall depending on the finishes you choose.

The String shelving system was designed by Swedish Architect Nils Strinning in 1949, it became an instant classic thanks to its affordable pricing, flexibility and minimal aesthetic. The next year an order was placed to fit-out the planned UN Headquarters in New York City, the perfect fit for the now iconic modernist building. The brand has developed additions to the system over the years and now offers its modular shelving system in a multitude of arrangements and finishes.
