Add some visual interest in the home with Bookworm by Atelier 010, a design studio based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Focusing as much on form as it does on function, it is a bookcase for design-obsessed literary lovers. Instead of being a traditional and, let's face it, boring shelving unit, this one curls abstractly like a scribbled 'O' on the wall in a playful way.

Not only does Bookworm by Atelier 010 add a sculptural element to living spaces, it also provides another perch to sit on. Perfect to rest on while reading one of the books placed on the shelf, it addresses more than organization. Made out of thin layers of MDF and plywood and a single stainless steel leg, Bookworm by Atelier 010 also provides a dangling light source. Stats for Curling Shelving Units Trending: Older & Buzzing
