''After so many years when I look back, still the Bookworm and FPE are the most ground-breaking products I was involved with in an industrial context.'' -Ron AradA product that seamlessly merges at once the creativity of Ron Arad and the technological prowess of Kartell, the flexible Bookworm Bookshelf is a wonder to behold whose appeal has remained strong for over a decade. Through the use of extrusion technology, the Bookworm is able to assume any shape at all without a compromise in strength or functionality. Each Bookworm comes with a set of flexible, durable bookends that move along the curves of the shelf to provide support for any shape. The Bookworm's elastic nature allows it to fit into any environment both physically and aesthetically.Designed by: Ron Arad, 1994

The attainment and preservation of this certification testifies to Kartell's commitment to high quality and continued research into higher levels of quality in company management systems.

Questions & Answers

Still have questions about this product? We're here to help

“Hello, how is this attached to the wall?” asked by Rosy

"Hi Rosy, to attach this unit to the wall, "uprights" are used. The uprights are what holds the piece to the wall. Each unit comes with directions on how to install the bookworm. The key is to bend the frame into the shape you want and then you secure the uprights to the wall." Cornelius from Wayfair
