Unique and practical, the Bookworm shelf by Kartell makes a grand impression in a modern home. The eye-catching curved silhouette features angled accents that securely mount to the wall. Aptly named, the structure resembles a worm to bring a touch of nature inside. Thanks to the sturdy metal structure, it holds many books and other pieces of decor with ease. Fine, Italian craftsmanship ensures the shelf is designed with longevity in mind.
Manufactured in Italy with incredible attention to detail and designed by Ron Arad, the Bookworm shelf is available in three different versions to accommodate individual preferences. An array of finishes are available as well.
