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 allowed for the creation of this curvy, flexible PVC bookcase, which assumes any desired shape without compromising strength and functionality. It is advisable to install the shelf in a curved shape to keep the materials in tension and to increase resistance once loaded.
