The Dutch design studio Atelier 010 have created the Bookworm bookcase. This fun piece of furniture combines a wrap-around bookshelf with a place to relax and read. The piece is finished in orange and green and stands by itself with the aid of a stainless steel foot in the side-wall. The designers have included a light bulb for night time reading.

Bookworm Bookcase Description 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 moulds 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.”
