Weston Library Oxford Opens With B-Line/Wave
This refurbished and renamed Grade II Listed Oxford landmark (formerly The New Bodleian Library) marks the first installation of B-Line/Wave. Specified by Wilkinson Eyre Architects.

B-Line/Wave’s desk lights provide excellent coverage and glare-free illumination using an inverted V-shaped shade. A rich bronze finish compliments the tone set by the furniture made of European Oak.

Weston Library also chose B-Line bookshelf lighting. B-Line’s purposeful design and 121 lumens/watt LEDs discreetly and efficiently light the 2.5 Metre height shelving.
