Curved Bookcase by Atelier 010 – Bookworm

A bent plywood masterpiece, this curved bookcase must be so attractive because of its organic shape.

We were instantly drawn to this unexpected object from the Dutch design team Atelier 010. They took two banal items, plywood and bookcase, and created such an original work – the Bookworm.

The structure consists of three MDF / plywood parts shaped with custom-made molds, and is assembled on location, to incorporate a place to sit and relax and a light bulb. We really like the Bookworm.
