BCI Modern Library Furniture Completes Another Calgary Public Library Renovation

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

The Calgary Public Library System is at it again with a branch renovation utilizing BCI Modern Library Furniture. The Fish Creek Public Library has just completed its renovation incorporating  BCI’s Double-Face Opal Shelving System with Steel Canopy Tops, Double-Face Opal Shelving Systems with CD-DVD Browser Shelves and Single-Face Opal Shelving System with Magazine Display Shelves.

While the Opal Shelving System possess its own uniqueness, it has the ability to adapt to any library setting. The shelving system provides both storage and display capabilities.

With its over 30 year history and respected reputation in the business furniture and architectural interior products industry, BCI’s dealer, HBI – https://www.hbicalgary.com, was responsible for the design and supplying the lighting system for the shelving units. The overall configuration is aesthetically pleasing, while providing optimum shelving lighting.

This is the third branch project BCI and HBI have worked on together and the results speak for themselves!

Modern Libraries Around the World

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

There is no doubt that today’s libraries are facing a rebirth to keep up with the digital landscape. Gone are the days of quiet, dark spaces and old wooden chairs and shelving.

Pictured below (and included in this link to the 25 Modern Libraries from Around the World) is The Black Diamond Library located in Denmark. Notice the natural light flooding the atrium and adjacent rooms.

Black Diamond Library Denmark

Like the photo above, as you scroll through these 25 amazing libraries, you will notice the open, airy spaces with lots of glass and colors throughout. The architectural curves in the design of not only the structure of the building, but also of the furniture, creates a contemporary and serene style. Our brains are said to react more positively towards shapes and curves versus straight lines, which can resemble sharp objects.

Whether it is a new project or a renovation to an existing library, BCI Modern Library Furniture has over 60 years of experience to make your dream a reality. Our products are designed for functionality, flexibility, comfort and allure. We partner with world-class architects to design a library for the 21st century.

Going back again this Thursday…

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

This Thursday we are going back to a project we did at the Darien High School Media Center in Darien, CT. In conjunction with the architecture firm Herbert S. Newman & Partners, P.C. http://www.hsnparch.com/, this project was a success.

The school is home to some 1300 students and is 325,000 square feet. Shelving was a integral piece to this project as the media center had a collection of over 40,000 volumes and AV materials. We chose a highly flexible shelving system with interchangeable shelving parts. Additional shelving was provided in the reading room as well as study carrels with task lighting for students.
