The Kartell Bookworm Shelf designed by Ron Arad combines an artist’s creativity with a great company’s technology.
A careful analysis of extrusion technology has allowed the creation of a curvy bookcase which assumes any desired shape, without compromising strength and functionality, a bookcase design of industrial scale that can rightfully be considered the world’s most daring and revolutionary. The Bookworm Shelf features batch-dyed fire retardant PVC material available in three lengths. Bookworm is marked by a series of bookend supports. it is advisable to wall-mount the shelf in a curved shape to keep the materials in tension and to increase resitance once loaded. Approximately 20 lbs can be held between each support. The Kartell Bookworm Shelf is available through Lumens.
