Bookworm, the flexible bookshelf that combines an artist’s creativity with a great company’s technology, giving life to a bookcase design of industrial scale that can rightfully be considered the world’s most daring and revolutionary. 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. Available in three different 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 resistance once loaded.

REMINDER: If the intended wall for the bookshelf is made of gyprock with timber frame the only suited Bookworm style is circular - Why? Because the weight distribution of the books needs to be in this ‘close’ and solid shape - this keeps the weight evenly placed. However; a concrete or brick wall can have the ‘S’ or ‘worm’ style. Please note that each shelf on the bookworm can hold a TOTAL of: 7 Kilograms.
