An artist’s creativity combined with a great company’s technology, gives life to a bookcase design of industrial scale that can rightfully be considered the world’s most daring an 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 is marked by a series or book supports. Combines flexibility and superior durability allowing approximately 20 lbs between each support.

It is advisable to wall-mount the shelf in a curved shape keeping the material in tension and to increase resistance once loaded.

The Bookworm was designed by Ron Arad for Kartell in Italy.
