Kartell Bookworm Bookshelf

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 toughness and functionality. Unlimited shapes can be formed, limited only by personal creativity.


Bookworm is marked by a series of bookend supports. Bookworm combines flexibility and superior durability allowing approximately 20 lbs between 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.
