Bookworm designed by Atelier 010

Bookworm is the sculptural answer to a commission to design and produce an organic bookcase. Due to the curved shape, the case also offers a place to sit and relax.
The self-supporting shape consists of three parts, which are assembled on site and kept upright by a stainless steel foot in the sidewall. Bending thin layers of MDF and plywood across custom-made molds creates the curved shape. The outsides of the walls are spray-painted in colour, whilst the insides are fresh in white. A light bulb dangling from the top of the worm gives light to the reader’s eyes.
Bookworm is produced on request and is available in various colors. The price and further information is available at Atelier 010.
Atelier 010 is an architectural office and furniture maker with a personal and unconventional view of the built environment.
The price of the case is 6400 euro (VAT included), shipping costs outside The Netherlands not included. Up to now we don’t sell our work through retailers. It’s a hand-made piece of work, we produce the bookcase ourselves and only on request. It’s available in various colors.
The dimensions are 2,2 meter wide, 2,06 m high and the depth is varying from 15 cm up to 50 cm.
