The Denver Public Library is comprised of a 1956 structure with a 540,000 square-foot addition designed by Michael Graves, who was also heavily involved in the furniture design. Of particular importance was finding a source who could easily incorporate end panels into any manufacturer’s metal shelving solution for a unified design, as shown above. Our history of working with fine veneers in custom lay-ups was a key reason we were chosen as the primary supplier for this library.
