The role of the library in society has changed. You can still borrow books, music and films here, but the modern library is much more than that. It is a meeting place, hosting lectures, exhibitions and workshops.
More and more libraries are adopting a retail concept. These libraries are inspired by examples from the retail sector. Their aim is to surprise, tempt and inspire their visitors. They want a layout organised in thematic clusters and a more modern presentation. Books are presented ‘frontally’, with the cover and title visible at a glance. The thematic clusters are centred around attractive, easily accessible presentation tables and book displays. Key elements in the retail concept are atmosphere and recognition. The layout, lighting and use of colour in the library space play a major role.
The changing role of the library requires it to have flexible and versatile furnishing. Bieb Systemen, part of Van Keulen Interieurbouw, has the knowledge and expertise to meet this requirement.
