Kartell Bookworm Modular Bookshelf by Ron Arad 15 Bookends

From the creative mind of designer Ron Arad comes an innovative design for the standard wall shelf.  The Bookworm Modular Bookshelf from Kartell is a strip of tough yet flexible material that can be formed into a number of cool, quirky and curvilinear shapes.  Each strip comes with evenly spaced holes on which you can mount the bookends to support your books, CDs, DVDs and really anything you can think of. Each bookend can be mounted on either side of the strip offering you a limitless number of options for configuring this unique modern bookshelf.

Closeup of the BookwormIf you are looking for a place to store a large quantity of books, the Bookworm Bookshelf may not be the choice for you. Though this curvy bookshelf is plenty sturdy, the strength mainly depends on how you shape it, the curvier it is the more sturdy the support.  It is a great place to store almost anything in a fun, interesting way that looks great in you modern home or contemporary office.

Above all, the Bookworm Modular Bookshelf never fails to get noticed whether you get it in solid black or aluminum one of the cool, funk, transparent colors like cobalt blue or wine red.  The Bookworm is sold in different lengths and designated by the number of bookend it can hold.

Multiple Bookworms MountedThe seven bookend model costs $425.00, the eleven bookend version is $732.00 and the long 17 bookend shelf goes for $1,115.00. An even cooler look can be achieved by grouping several shelves together adding even more possibilities for creativity.

The Kartell Bookworm Modular Bookshelf by Ron Arad is an unusual and creative option for a wall mounted bookshelf, the only drawback that I can see is that is can be a bit tricky to mount on the wall. It definitely takes more than one pair of hands, which is why is why I would recommend buying it from Smart Furniture. They offer an inside delivery service that will send a couple of people over to professionally install your Bookworm Bookshelf so you know it will be secure and sturdy.
