Calgary Public Library among most Anticipated Buildings of 2018

Posted by Colleen Egan in News

The Calgary Public Library System is at it again with a project utilizing BCI Modern Library Furniture.

Just last week Architectural Digest featured Calgary Public Library as one of the 12 most anticipated buildings to be completed in 2018.  Snøhetta Architects has featured BCI’s signature Labyrinth Display Furniture along with our Slimline and Slimline Radius Shelving Systems on this remarkable project.

The 240,000ft2  building is a technologically advanced public space for innovation, research and collaboration. It will offer 30 free meeting rooms, a 350-seat performance hall, an Early Learning Centre for children and a space just for teens with video, music and gaming stations. The building also hovers over the existing Light Rail Transit Line, which cuts through the heart of the city.

Products We Love: Cocoon Lounge

Posted by Colleen Egan in News

All libraries are different. They vary in size, levels and layout. The functions of a library change over time and the existing building structure can be a limiting factor when wanting to make a change to the library space.

Creating zones within your library can be a challenge if you are unable to renovate. We have thought this through and come up with a perfect zoning solution that is easy to implement, and just as effective and impactful, without having to lay one brick!

Say hello to the Cocoon Lounge, the exciting addition to our Cocoon range of modular furniture. With one piece of furniture, you can now create a specialized zone within an open space. Whether a study zone for concentration or focus; or a gaming zone for play and fun, the innovative design of the Cocoon Lounge range allows you to reduce the scale of a large area and create a more intimate setting with its own unique purpose.

Key advantages of the Cocoon Lounge are:

-Get creative with lighting, graphics, screens, built-in furniture & functionalities to create unique & bespoke zoning solutions

-The acoustic properties ensure sound is contained within the Cocoon, preventing the disturbance of other library users

-Amplify the functionality and impact of the zone– use the exterior for storage and display of books, media and products relevant to the area.

Take a look at the various designs and be inspired. The possibilities are endless!
