Bookworm, the flexible bookcase, is the result of the encounter between the creativity of an artist such as Ron Arad, combined with Kartell's technology, giving life to a revolutionary project produced on an industrial scale. A sinuous bookcase that takes on the desired shape without compromising strength and functionality. Available in three different lengths, Bookworm is marked by a series of bookend supports. Bookworm combines flexibility and high strength allowing a load of about 10 kg per support

It is advisable to attach the bookcase in accordance with the curved lines of its shape to maintain the tension of the material and to increase its load capacity. Before attaching to the wall, it is advisable to mount the bookends which can be positioned anywhere above or below the shelf. Sketch the desired shape on the wall and only then proceed to attach the bookcase to the wall.

Material: batch dyed flame retardant PVC

Dimensions : 3.2m (7 bookends),


Ron Arad
Designed by

Ron Arad

Ron Arad attends the accademy of art in Jerusalem and, in 1974, he settles in London where he quickly develops artistic and cultural interests outside architecture. His work becomes increasingly oriented towards design and non-rhetorical artistic use of materials. In 1981, with Dennis Groves and Caroline Thorman, he set up One Off, the design agency that made its successful debut with a set of tubular steel furniture. As a sculptor and craftsman he produces furniture that is emotional and sensual as well as aggressively light and practical.
