THIS BULB DOES NOT SHIP TO CALIFORNIA. Why?
  • Made In Italy
An artist's creativity combined with a great company's technology gives life to a bookcase design of daring industrial scale: 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 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).

Kartell has been a leader in modern Italian design for decades, and their collection is recognizable for its colors, shapes and playfulness. And, of course, for its predominant material: plastic. Kartell has developed many advancements in plastics, including improved transparency, softness, flexibility and durability. From the Bourgie lamps to the Masters collection, Kartell succeeds with a little irony and a lot of innovation.

  • Design: Ron Arad
  • Made using batch-dyed fire-retardant PVC materials
  • Strong with flexibility
  • Holds about 20 pounds between each supportive bookend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bookworm is great Expensive but nothing like it on the market. It does require putting a bunch of holes in the wall so beware of that. Nice addition to our family room. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
