It has been proclaimed a 'future classic'. It has been called 'innovative', 'the world's most beautiful bookshelf', 'a pearly drape for books'. But Cell, designed by Peter Cohen, is also a hightech shelving system, brilliant in its design and use of space.

Cell looks incredibly light, with its paper-thin shelves and its sleek appearance. People tend to ask "what can you put on it?" The answer is that you can fi ll it with books; as many books you can fi t in the rack - without a hint of bowing in its thin laminated steel shelves.

Cell has attracted attention from the start and has already received several awards:

2005 Our Favourites (as a prototype) - Elle Interiors
2006 The Great Design Prize - Residence
2007 Furniture of the Year - Swedish magazine Sköna Hem
2008 Added to the design collections of National Museum

Cell is an entirely Swedish product. As of 2008, it is sold by String Furniture, maker of another established design classic - the String bookshelf of 1949 by Nisse Strinning.

Cell is an open shelving system. Starting from a set of basic combinations, a number of configurations and extensions are possible. Basic sections have a width of 52 cm, while extensions measure 50 cm. Cell is produced in 3 standard heights : 220, 110 and 80 cm.

With Cell, Peter Cohen has created a statement of sleekness - a bookshelf for a new era.
