Demco Cantilibra Shelving


A library design classic, made in the UK

Design that stands the test of time

Cantilibra library shelving that stands the test of time - Gresswell

Cantilibra shelving has been designed to function with integrity over a long period of time.

Purity of purpose is what has created the valued Cantilibra look, with a flexibility to achieve the feel you want for your space. Cantilibra is the antithesis of fashion. There are few products, designs or brands that remain relevant and fresh yet relatively unchanged over decades. Cantilibra shelving is exactly that.

The original design by Rudolf Koreska still forms the basis of today’s Cantilibra range. Now manufactured in the UK using the original Danish tooling, Cantilibra has stood the test of time – yet we continue to develop options to keep in step with the demands of today’s library users.

Function. Value for money. Built to last. That’s Cantilibra.
