Design by Ron Arad, 1994.
Made in Italy by Kartell.

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 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 strength and functionality. Unlimited shapes can be formed, limited only by personal creativity. Available in three lengths. Read below for further details.

Available in three different lengths, Bookworm is marked by a series of bookend supports. Bookworm combines flexibility and superior durability allowing for a load of around 20 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. Select Short (7 bookends), Medium (11 bookends) or Long (17 bookends).

Notes: Recyclable content. Price shown includes shipping.
