Outside of NYC
We fabricate and ship our reading room kits to cities, libraries, and other nonprofit organizations across the globe. One kit features a patented rock stage case that rolls into place and unfolds to reveal books or an art studio. Another uses a system of cubes to create a 360º display. We also fabricate stackable benches and canvas covers as well. We connect, promote, and support organizations using Uni equipment so we can all share new solutions and best practices. We’ve built and shipped Uni infrastructure to the DC Public Library, Seattle Public Library, Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy (Boston MA), Calgary Public Library, The U.S. State Department, many more partners. We’d love to make something for you—contact Sam Davol for more information.
In New York City
In NYC, we’ve got you covered—you can invite the Uni to your neighborhood or public event. The Uni reading room offers high quality books and activities, dedicated staff, and an architect-designed kit with seating. We work in prominent locations and intimate neighborhood settings alike. We’re a nonprofit, and we offer a sliding scale to help community organizations afford this amenity in NYC. Here’s a form to request a visit from the Uni. Contact Leslie Davol with any questions.
Uni Benches are sturdy, lightweight (9lbs), and stackable, providing seating for two people side-by-side. They can be easily arranged for readings, workshops, and events. The bench material is translucent polypropylene and can be made in custom colors. We also make an optional custom bench dolly.
