An artist’s creativity combined with a great company’s technology results in a bookcase design of industrial scale that can rightfully be considered the world’s most daring and revolutionary: Bookworm, the flexible bookshelf.
A careful analysis of extrusion technology has allowed the creation of a curvy bookcase which assumes any desired shape, without compromising toughness and functionality. Unlimited shapes can be formed, limited only by personal creativity.

Bookworm combines flexibility and superior durability allowing for a load of around 21 lbs for each support. It is advisable to wall-mount the shelf in a curved shape to keep the materials in tension and to increase resistance once loaded.

• Materials: Batch-dyed fire-retardant PVC
• 17′ 1″ W X 7.9″ D X 7.5″ H
• Design Ron Arad, 1994
